Bob the betta has a jaw problem

hi guys
a few weeks ago I bought myself an nice young male betta and I named him Bob.
he's been doing and eating well and he is getting more beautifull by the day.

yesterday I noticed the right side of his jaw looks like it's dislocated.
this way he can't close his mouth properly but he doesn't seem to mind, he's eating fine.
I don't know how this could have happened since the only other inhabitants of my tank are cory's and the interior exists out of plants.

does anyone of you guys ever experienced this sort of injury?
what can I do to help bob?

I'll post some pics of him soon.

greetings from europe!

I will bump this for you...

Is this a recent discovery are you sure it was not a developmental deformity?

tnx jamietron,
I don't think it's a developmental deformity, I tink he just has a bit of a asimetrical jaw.
it's probably nothing to worry about. but it caught my eye and I wasn't sure if it was a serious problem or not. so I made this thread.
bob is eating, breathing and biting fine ;)

Oh I would say it isn't much to worry about if he seems healthy and is eating fine That's very good to hear.
