I prefer silk plants for my bettas, they are less likely to have any sharp points or edges that could catch their delicate fins.
I plan on getting real plants in July and I was wondering if I could prevent his glass surfing until then. I don’t want him to be bored

I think you'll be ok using them for a bit, just keep an eye on his fins. Are there any other decorations in his tank? Rocks, caves, and other things like that would also help keep him occupied and give him things to explore.

The decorations sound good. Has he been in this tank long? If not, and he's only being treated there, he could just be a bit nervous still.

The sending one looks good.

I would to the tissue test.

Make the decor a little damp, and drag a tissue paper over it multiple times. If it’s tears, it isn’t recommended to be in the tank. If not, it should be good.
