Betta sick

I have noticed for the passed few days a lump on my bettas left side. It doesn't appear to be hurting him or anything. The only weird thing I have seen him doing is laying on the floor more.

Fast him for 3-4 days and put Epsom salt in the tank. 1 TEAspoon per 5 gallons of water. It'll act as a natural laxative

Assuming it's constipation you could double the dose. If it doesn't get better you could be dealing with a parasite or bacterial infection

Is his scales starting to pop out or pineconing over a lot of his body? I can't tell from the picture
