u can see that just behind and underneth the mouth, it is a little bloated...i do not think it is constipation as my betta''s poo is normal

2 more pics..

im putting him in a small tank when taking the pics as the main tank has plants and caves that makes it hard for me to take a pic

Ok if his poo is normal I would add a bacterial med to his tank.
Don't feed him for a few days.
What do you normally feed the betta?

Bad diet of to many dried foods and bloodworms.
Frozen daphnia good as it digest the fish food, brimestrimp.
Also veg in there diet like peas it a laxative to fish.
