Spinal Genetics or Disease?

No matter how many crown tail bettas my cousin or I have bought, they all have this funky spinal curve down by their tail. The veils we have do not have this. If you look at the fish from above, his body is straight til just before the tail fin it curves slightly. I have included pictures of my bettas with this. Is it genetics maybe? Do all CT's have this? Is it from being in a cup all the way from Thailand?

Forrest is the oldest, so it is very prominent and you can see the bulging (towards the camera) where it starts.


These two are under an inch long, so I pointed out where it is.

my bettas both have the same thing. It sounds like they are bred with it. As long as it dosent affect their swimming, they are fine. spinal deformity, when veiwed from above the water, loos like the spine i an s and the fish has much diffuculty swimming.

Hmm I wondered. My crown tails are S shaped, the oldest started out like the baby ones as just a slight curve and now it's worse. Which mine are wild caught so they aren't even from the same line of breeding that's why I wondered if it was genetic or if they got a disease (fishy scoliosis lol) along the way.
