Yo bro, you literally posted just a couple hours ago, give it a minute haha. No need to get snappy with people. The nice thing about this forum is that sometimes people won't comment if they don't know the correct answer. Rather than comment and give bad or incorrect advice, they might wait until a more experienced person sees it and comments. Not all of us check this forum every hour, and when we do we tend to check more pressing issues first like emergencies and care. We're happy to help, but have a little patience!
And unless its a very different looking type (veiltail, crowntail, plakat, ect.) its hard to tell at a glance unless your betta is flaring. The way you can tell, for example, if its a half moon, is if its tail makes a straight D shape when flared. When a half moon is relaxed, you won't see that straight line from end to end. Every other tail type that isn't the obvious ones mentioned above look pretty darn close to each other and come down to small details. They all look almost exactly the same when the tail is relaxed and droopy. Plus, a lot of the time, you go off of the rays in a tail to determine type. On top of that, a lot of bettas nowadays are a combination of types because of breeding. You may have a delta tail that has a tiny bit of crowning at the top, but isn't a full crown tail. You may have a veiltail like mine that almost seems part delta because their tail doesn't narrow into a point like most veiltails. Tail types aren't species per say, there's a lot of variation.
He personally looks like either a halfmoon or delta to me, but I'm no expert. *shrug*
If you're having trouble getting your betta to flare, try using a mirror or a pencil or finger (up to the glass). You can also try putting your betta in a smaller container for a short while so he has less room to move and you can get a better picture, if you're really having trouble.
