Question about fin regrowth

Jalen shredded his tail up pretty badly a few weeks ago, and since then it's grown back nicely. Several of his rays are a little crooked though, and he almost looks like a rosetail. I'll post pics if you guys need them, but is it normal for the rays to grow back crooked? Will they straighten out?

I purchased one of my males with a pretty serious case of fin rot. He's now healthy, happy, and active. However, his regrowth is kind of "messy" looking. I did everything correctly to treat the fin rot, so I think regrown fins might just tend to be a bit sloppy. I wouldn't worry as long as he seems healthy and active.

Some fins just don't grow back in correctly.

I know some of Ratchet's rays go straight down, only to make a 130 degree angle at the end. He's also got a big gap between two of his rays now that make him look like a very mild double tail.
