Question Curled Dorsel fin!!!

My betta has a bit of a curled dorsal fin, and that has been the case since I got him. Is that a problem?

btw... it is only curled at the tip, and when he flares up it dissaperes.

its probably genetics. my DT has it since and before i bought him on aquabid. his dorsal (before this last finrot case) was like a killer whales' curled dorsal. even full flare only got 90% opening. it may be a case of heavy dorsal fin or weaker genetics.
