Ever since I got my betta (About a month ago now) I noticed his beard around his gills sticks out a lot more than any other betta I've owned to the point where its very noticeable, he's also breathing hard which I don't see in my other bettas. Any idea on the cause of this? I'm speaking of the "bump" under his head just before his fins.

Not an expert and have not seen this before. Im thinking. First off, I cant tell how big he is, age. So, since you just got him Im assuming he is young. Might just be growing up and that is what he is going to have. Maybe inbred judging by the weird scales on his head. If swimming well and eating then I would not worry.
