If he is otherwise acting and eating okay....then it may be a genetic issue...I can't say its normal per se....but it may not be problematic unless he has other symptoms along with the side floating.......

Some bettas I have had liked to rest on the top, sorta on their side. It worried me, but they were always healthy xD If he is bloated, and "coughing" up huge bubbles it's SBD, if not then he's fine... My friend's betta I am sure has permanent SBD. but yours doesn't sound like that :)

Bubble nests are normal and really good :) if he swims awkwardly then yeah there could be a problem, but he might be like my male who sleeps on his side ><

And it is, but that's ok maybe a mod can move it!

My betta did the same thing. He's probably constipated or has swim bladder disorder, both of which are caused from overfeeding. Fast him for 2 days, it should help. Also, if he continues to bloat, add 1/8 of a teaspoon of Kosher Salt. I did this with Mr. Bubbles (he was swimming almost upside down and really bloated), and he's fine. Mr. Bubbles got like this after I gave him a teeny, tiny, microscopic piece of a freeze-dried bloodworm, I think he's allergic to them, since he does this every time I've given him one of those. What are you feeding them and how much? Let me know if you have any more questions, I'd love to help :)

It sounds like your fish is having trouble with his swim bladder. Try withholding food for 2-3 days and see if that won't help a bit. If it doesn't you can find lots more info on how to treat the issues in diseases and emergencies. Sometimes if I feed too much though my boys do that too, so don't panic too much yet.
