Betta With Weird Bubble On His Legs Fins?!

HI everyone!
I've been a silent watcher for a while now, but now I registered myself because I really need some help, the ethernet wasn't on my side this time... there you go ;
Montana tank
10 gallons planted
1 red delta Betta
3 bronze dwarf cory
1 elegan cory
(And yes my cory colors matches my ferrets, and my Betta represent the one at the rainbow bridge) LOL
Air stone in the back left
Filtration monster marina slI'm 15 HOB (I only use the frame, sponge is fluval edge (he ripped his fins 2 weeks ago..) and inside I have all the things from aquaclear 30 (ceramic tubes, sponge, etc
.)and a little pad of polyfilter)
Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0
Nitrate +/- 10ppm, i'm doing 10% bi-weekly water change and sand cleaning, love that my guys home is clean and safe.

Today when I went to turn the light on and say hI to my watery babies, I saw something reaaaally strange on Montana. He has a sort of weird bubble on his pelvic fins, but otherwise eating like a pig and doing his little dance and following me around. He is probably about 1 year old, he is in my care for maybe 4 months and we went thru a lot of things together already. Gave up on fishkeeping 3 or 4 years ago, after 5 years with his predecessor (SIP Rambo) I was heartbroken so I said to myself no more, and then well yeah... Montana is in a 10gal and his brother Tremclad in a 20gal. I love those guys.

Long story short (ahaha..) some pictures I took of him and his tank colocs, everyone is doing fine but i'm afraid of missing something, and I want him to be the happiest he can be... what do you ladies and gentlemen think this is?

It could be a small cyst, or some healing damage. Keep an eye on it--there are surgical options if it starts to grow and affects his ability to swim
(and if you can afford that or have the tools to address it yourself).

I can manage that, he is in the 'ferrets/living room' so I spend a lot of time with him. And if I need help or tools, I work for exotic vets so I could ask them, I kinda like a reptile but in the water ahaha.. thanks for the response.

Just so you know, in less than 10 hrs the 'bubble' is gone!! Not a clue what was that. But i'm happy for my boy.

My boy gets a reoccuring "pimple" on one of his dorsal fins. Scared the crud out of me the first time Glad it's gone and he's none the worse for it!
