Betta Fin's...???

I have a very small young male betta (totally forgot the name) the body is starting to grow but the fin's don't seem to be getting bigger.
He has never been with anyother fish but there is the "White mossy" type fluff on the end of his tale...Not to sure what that is??
Any Idea's :D

If you are sure it's a male it could be a plakat I believe it's called. They have short fins as males. Not sure about the fuzzy stuff.

The fuzzy stuff could be fin rot or velvet. I'm recently back into the hobby so I'm not up to date on treatments.
