he looks a lot better today! those lil black things is from a thermometer i have, the white has basically gone, so maybe it was water quality? i noticed those spots a little earlier this morning but i cant seem to see much of it now

He looks fine - it‘s just his iridescence.

He might have been paler as well due to stress.

I‘d up his water temperature to 26-28 C. 20-24 C is too cold for a domestic Betta.
