Is my Betta Fish okay?

My Male Platinum Delta Tail has had a drooping fin ever since I bought him at the pet store. I noticed that he wasn't the most healthy Platinum betta but he kept looking at me. I heard it's similar to orcas when kept in tanks, could his fin be drooping from being In a container so long? I just got him 4 days ago so please no drastic changes, he's just starting to eat.

Im guessing he was kept in less than ideal conditions so maybe all he needs is time in the right conditions to repair himself. Feed a good quality food and make sure you keep his water pristine and see how he progresses.
