He usually flares with the gills but now he can't open one of them.....

    What is the tank size?
    Any tank mates?

    He's just stressed out from something. What are the tank parameters? Check for a spike in ammonia or nitrates, that could very well be the problem right there. I would do a big water change immediately just to be on the safe side, then give him a day or so and try feeding then.

    I think it’s stress. Can you list the parameters?

    BTW, beautiful betta!

    I'm I reading this post correctly... he said he scared his fish and he ran into something and has obvious physical injury. This isn't from parameters in the tank.

    Normally, Melafix is recommended, but Beta's can't handle Melafix (or I think Primafix). Daily water changes may be your best bet. Or a bath in
    Methylene blue may be called for.. it looks kinda bad. Although, your water does look cloudy so it's likely not helping.
