It is very hard to tell when the fins are in a relaxed position. Put a mirror in front of him and take another pic and it will be easier to help you out.

I'm inclined to say that it's a delta tail or dumbo ear betta

Usually the elephant ears are roundtails when you get them from the chain stores. They try not to go too fancy, less money they have to spend.
