It looks to me like she has just a hint of fin rot around old wounds, but it's in an early stage. She should heal up quickly in clean, warm water.
I can see that she has fully grown pectoral fins, so I agree that she has never had a dorsal fin. The pectorals are the first to be damaged and never grow in babies, so since she has them, the issue was not water quality during early development and was likely a genetic mutation. Also, she's an adult. Once her stress stripe disappears and she colors up, she'll seem more like an adult.
