Is my Betta sick? If so what sickness and what can I do?

I don't overfeed him, but his stomach looks big and bloated, like I fed him way too much but I fed him the same amount I usually feed him, which is 3 or 4 medium sized Betta pellets. He also isn't as active and is sleeping and resting most of the time. When he does swim, he seems to be having trouble swimming up, he keeps sinking when he moves. What can I do?

    Look at him from above. Are his scales sticking out, like a pine cone? That's called dropsy, and unfortunately there is no cure.
