New betta has strange patches of blue?

So my new betta came it the mail 3 days ago. I saw some strange blue patches on him the day he came. He does seem to be a tail biter (came with a shredded dorsal fin). No fussienes, just strange dark blue patches. Hes eating well and is swimming around alot. Tank is 2.5 gallons, heated, and will be filtered as soon a I plug in the now-baffeld filter (its never been plugged in). He has two soft plastic plants and a smooth bridge to hide in. Whats going on?

Is it the same one with the person you bought it with?
Pictures will help.

Need to see a photo. Many bettas have blue on them as their normal colors, so a photo would be the only way for someone to help you out.

I'm guessing just a marble color showing. From the sounds of it he came to you pretty beat up, and as they come into better living conditions their true colors shine through

Thanks... Yeah he seemed to be stressed. He didnt eat for a day but he's eating like a pig now. I am not home now (using an iPhone) but will post pics when I get home.
