New betta fish.

Okay so i recently got 2 betta fish like 2 days ago. I see that my betta fish doesn't really have very showy fins. Like they flare when i show it a mirror but otherwise they are just together. Is it normal or is it a sign of some disease? I mean I'm new to bettas so idk. Any help?Click image for larger version

Alright I'll start with some basic questions.
Is he in a bowl or a tank?
Does he have a heater and a filter?
Did you cycle the tank?
How did you add him in?

Note that his fins are clamped so he could just be cold. Bettas like to be around the typical tropical temperature of 78 farenheit.
You should have your water parameters tested just in case. Most pet stores will do it for free but it's good to have a test kit on hand.

Hold up I just reread that. The 2 aren't together right?
