Bloated or dropsy?

I have my betta in a 20 gallon community tank. His belly is looking a big bigger than normal. He seems fine he swims around and occasionally rest on my driftwood.

Here are some photos

Do his scales stick out like a pinecone?

I don't think its dropsy. You'd know something was real bad if it was. His scales would stick out bad. What are you feeding? He might just be bloated from food

I feed him tetramin and some times bettamin. I also feed my corys sinking waffers and he sometimes eats those. I feed the fish once a day
