Hello, and welcome to the forum!

I don't think it's a galaxy, it looks to be a marbling type to me.
@indjo will be able to confirm for sure.

Hello. Welcome to the forum.
IMO, it's neither a galaxy (needs to have dots of irid on body) nor a koi (no koi carp markings).
If anything, I'd call it a multi turquoise or fancy.

It's very pretty, whatever the color.

Galaxy, Koi, Fancy....are all breeder terms to describe a Marble Betta. I haven't shown in a few years, but he would put into the Patterned Plakat class. He almost has a Pie-bald look (still a marble, just a subclass) because of his white head, but it goes past the gill plate and a Pie-bald is just a white head.

He is a cutie though :)
