male betta

This is the 3rd time my betta has spawned but the eggs nver live. I think he eats them... Should I let him keep trying or are they infertile? I just lost the 3rd batch yesterday. The 1st and 3rd pic are of the male and the second is of the female. In the pics of the male he was tending to the eggs. That was before they went missing like the last 2 times. I also havent seen him go down and pic up the eggs when they spawn like he should. Only the female does, but this time if the eggs fell from the nest he would pick them up. Maybe he just needs some practice... Thanks in advance

Are you keeping the male and female betta together?
If so, seperate and leave male to tend to eggs. If that is not the case, give him some practice.
