Spoonhead?

I'm still studying about breeding and forms. But, I've discovered spoonheads. I don't know what a spoonhead looks like and I would like an example. Is Lebron a spoonhead? I'm not intending to breed him but if he is, he would be an example of a spoonhead. Are spoonheads just for HMs or for all the tail types of Bettas? Here's a side picture of Lebron:

I wouldn't call him a spoonhead. Usually with a spoonhead IMO, the area before the mouth would tip up further.

Really? Is it like a deformity? Sorry with all the questions. Hehehe.. So he's not a spoonhead... What do they actually look like?

I don't have any pictures of spoonheads, but maybe someone else can help.

Lebron is not a spoonhead although he has a hunchback. A spoonhead would be near the eye/mouth area where there is a dip in the head.

Spoon heads are not deformities. They are a breed of fighter as well as they can be seen in fancy splendens.

Spoon heads are completely smooth. Anything that isn't is hunched.

Hunchback? Is that a health issue?

Some examples of spoonheads-






You can see how they resemble the shape of a "spoon," here-


A betta should have a nice, smooth top line from the mouth to the dorsal, with no bludges or dips.
