What's up with my new betta's eyes?

Tonic


pixlr_20220624005217190.jpgJust bought the girl pictured in the top two photos from a breeder (same fish, she just has 2 different colors on each side). The lower image is another of my fish for comparison. I'm wondering if anyone has seen eyes like this before. I don't think it's pop-eye...it doesn't really look the same. Just looks like really big eyes, maybe similar to the ball python bug-eye genetic trait (not harmful, just big). I can't find anything on the web about this in bettas.

**Edit: the breeder has several more fish that appear like this, but otherwise all seem happy and healthy.**

Below is an image of said ball python condition (left), for reference, compared to standard eyes (right).

I have seen both on my bettas. Never seemed to affect them in my cases.
