Uhh I'm pretty sure other people experience this problem and I know betta fish do this but how do I keep my betta from jumping out of its tank when it's time to clean it and I have to transfer him with a net into a plastic bowl?

Try to catch him with a plastic cup instead, then while he is in the cup cover the top with your hand, while he is in the bowl use a piece of seran wrap

When I did 100% water changes for betta in my quarintine tank (10g) I just caught him in a just under 1g glass cube (pushing it under surface created suction as safe rushed into the small cube and would pull him in. I kept the water level low so he couldn't jump but also put black cloth over the top.
Rest of the time I leave fish in for water changes and have had no issue with jumping.
