Looks like a fat, mature blue marbled female. Not quite HM so perhaps be VT, I’d need her tail to be spread out more to be sure.

Yes, she’s definitely very fat she takes everyone else’s food. She’s always been pretty fat since I got her, she’s a bit less fat compared to when I got her. Here’s some more photos that hopefully picture her tail a bit better

I can see now how the tail rays split 2-3 times so she definitely has some HM genes in her but they aren’t expressed by the spread too well IMO. She also has spiked edges were-as a good HM wouldn’t. I suppose you could call her a delta tail though.

I would say, given my great knowledge of betta varieties, that you have a very pretty fish there.
