2 True percs?

I know it has come up before but....
I have just purchased my clowns (2 juv)
LFS had them labeled as true percs and was wondering if they really are or not.

They are 3 stripe and there is a solid black line between the white and orange part

They are only about 1.5-2" long

I also got 2 peppermint shrimp in the hopes that they will munch some aptaisia

From what I know, a true perc has a thicker black line than that fish has. I would guess it's a false, but the black lines might get thicker with age though. Let's see what the pros say.
