How large is the bowl? are you able to heat it?

Whatever the cause of the dorsal collapse- probably the fish had clamped fin because was feeling unwell or stressed- it looks like fungus is on the area- sorry I am not sure what medication to recommend because it's hard to tell what the underlying cause was- but at the very least you should do frequent water changes on the bowl- something like 25% twice a day- be sure to keep the temperature the same, and drape a cloth or something over/around the bowl to reduce stress to the fish. Also don't try to feed her while she is ill- probably won't eat and it will just foul the water in such a small environment that's hard to avoid.
