Should i be concerned by her lack of white?

Should I be concerned that she only has patchy white across her body for breeding purposes? She is a pure red dragon, and siblings have full bodies white and mask.

Gaps between scales are apparent specially on drgn scales - compared to non drgn. It is genetic but can be easily bred out if you keep breeding the full scaled bodies. IMO these gaps often occur on incomplete genetic make ups (drgn). So if you constantly breed drgn to drgn, the gaps will eventually be covered.
