Hi. My new betta always has stress stripes and now recently got a lump on his chin. He is acting perfectly normally, there’s just stripes. We bought him in a tank full of females (because the store thought he was a female and we did too). I can’t really think of anything that could give him stress stripes. Water conditions are ok.

Not sure about the chin bump without a closer look. The stripes could be due to age- young bettas have stripes. He will likely change as he adjusts to his new home. Lots of plants and hides will make him feel more comfy.
Also just as a reference- saying your exact water parameters is more helpful than just saying theyre good.
