Pic #2 & 3 definitely look like a pretty bad case of pop eye.

My thai flag betta colors change from white to black head after living in a blackwater, should I be worry about it?
(Right is before, left is after)


Also does the betta on the original post have pop eyes?

I wouldn't worry too much about the color changes if your water parameters are ok. Color changes are common in those kinds of bettas. The original one does look like popeye to me, but it's hard to be sure.

Your Thai flag is just marbling as it's line isn't stabilised, nothing to worry about, it's likely to end its life being completely blue with maybe a little red in places

I need pictures of the first fish (possible pop-eye) that are in focus.

The colour change in the second fish is nothing to worry about.

The pH of 6.0 is fine for Bettas.
