I’m not experienced but always interested.

I’m throwing in my first ideas while seeing your pictures:

I see a Veiltail Betta (although his back fin = Caudal is so short for whatever reason) from Cambodian background (you can google Cambodian color/Betta if you are interested).

I don‘t see metallic, dragon or opaque (those would be the things I look into when ”confronted“ with Dragon).

I just see a white/light bodied Veiltail (mix?) who will hopefully never have the tumor or blindness problems a true dragon or heavy metallic scaled Betta very often develops.

All the best for your Sweety and keep us updated how he develops if you like!

You could keep track and take pictures every month or so - I find this really interesting and I learn a lot by just comparing the images.
With your fish I‘m also interested how more experienced members or breeders will ”judge“ him🤗.

Here is a breeder’s link dealing with colours and genenetics if you want to dive into the topic of Betta genetics:

Yep. :) That he is.

FWIW, I don't really worry about Dragons. I've had too many to count over the years and not a Diamond Eye or tumor in the bunch. I wonder if the percentage is really that high considering only those whose Dragons have the problem comment.

I've also seen damage and cataracts diagnosed as Diamond Eye... even in non-Dragons.
