You have a dragonscale betta. The "film" over his eyes is a byproduct of the dragonscale gene from somewhat irresponsible breeding. Some dragonscales have the film worse than others as a result. Yours is likely partially blind from it. I am not sure about the mouth, though. He may have some sort of issue and the swelling is making the film on his eyes more apparent.
