Question Weird fin is weird.

LB always had this odd looking dorsal fin, however it wasn't crazy odd when he was smaller, but the larger he gets, the more and more noticeable it's getting.
The dorsal fin just looks so...weird to me and I'm just not sure if it's something to really worry about, it's just something he'll grow out of or have forever. He's still young so....yeah.
To describe it, it's like it's sticking out the side of the fin rather than nicely scoop down or something.
Here's some pics:




I also have a video of him
to get a better idea of what I'm talking about.

LB is fine though. I'm just wondering if his dorsal fin does look weird or I'm over analyzing it.

Thank guys :)
(...it is called the dorsal fin right...? haha )

I'm not sure what could be wrong, but you are right, it's not a normal looking dorsal. I'm interested to see if anyone can figure out what is wrong with it, and what to do to fix it.

*officially stalks this thread*

Edited to add: He IS a cute fish though! I love how big and black his eyes are. :D

Yeah, I'm glad I finally posted it up on here and hopefully get some sort of answer.
The rays are just...going up yet the rest of the fin is all "I'm going that way". I wonder if it's just a genetic issue, but I have no knowledge of such things, lol.

>>>Hehe, he is a cutie. He stole my heart the moment I saw him.

Aww, he's like Willy in "Free Willy".
Although I'm sure it's not for the same reason.

Ahh...I figured it would. Do you think this odd fin will somehow harm him or bother him when he is older? Thank you much for your input :)

HAHA! I just imagined myself doing that famous scene but with Lychee jumping over me. I live in a strange world in my head.
