Please help! Clear Betta Fish Fins!

Heybguys.
I have a Betta Fish in a 5.5 gallon aquarium.
Recently, he jumped oit of the awuarium and my brother saved him but he got innjured on his scales and his fins.
He seemed fine, he began to eat, and he began to swim normally again.
However, recently, I noticed his fins are becoming transparent from the center outwards. It is not new grpwth.
Is this fin rot? How can I help my betta Fish?
He has been behaving and eating normally by the way.
PLEASE HELP!
THANKS!

Some parts of my Betta Fish's fins are almost completely clear.
However, some are kind of translucent. I almost want to say white, but it is not like fungus or paper white it is just translucent.
Is this Fin Rot?
Whatbis this?

How can I help my Betta Fish?

Pictures?


One possibility is that you could just have a marble betta. Marbles have a tendency to change colors over time. I don't think the process is fully understood, but stress can trigger those changes.


Without any other information to go on, best I can recommend is to just keep him in clean, warm (low 80s F), lightly salted water (about 1 tsp per gallon).
