Something is wrong with my Betta, maybe velvet?

What is this? I feel like its velvet but I just saw it today and I haven’t the slightest clue what this is..

if you're talking about that long stripe with no scales, he probably just rubbed against something and scratched himself. i don't see any velvet, he actually looks pretty healthy

You aren't generally going to be able to tell velvet in daylight, anyway. Maybe if the fish was already dead from it.

Usually the way to see velvet on a fish is to make the tank and room completely dark then shine a flashlight on the fish, see the gold dusting on it.
