Looks like my betta got into a fight with my blue lobster. And the lobster won. My poor betta has all his beautiful flowy fins nipped off. Do you think they will grow back or is he doomed to looked deformed forever.

They will grow back but with scar tissue, not quite so long, flowy & beautiful.
Isolate him for a while and trim any extremely uneven fins & treat him with some antibiotics to prevent fin rot.
Clean water & good food and he'll be dancing again soon.

I agree. Depending on how far on his fins the damage goes, he will probably be able to grow them back. But definitely separate the two. Most inhabitants with bettas find their flowing fins pretty irresistible. Step up the water changes, that will help tremendously with his recovery.
