Will my Glofish Betta Split tail fully heal?

I just bought a premium male betta from petsmart couple days ago. It is still very young but after looking closely it looks like its tail is split. Do you think the tail will fuse together as it grows or should I try to get another one?
Few things to point out:
The tank is 20g and not crowded.
I didnít see any of the other fishes nipping its fins and they pretty much look healthy, not to mention how recent it is.
The water is healthy and the conditions are good for it to grow.

No. That is how he will be. Glow fish are so manipulated. Inbred and other sorts. Just know he has a part in the way or a colic.

Yea but I already built a glow tank so may as well only get glofish. It was my first tank and it looked very unique. Itís most likely because I didnít know about a lot of fishes that are actually better than glofish.
