Is my clown a humpback?

Check out the one on the left. It's not a straight line from the front of his head to his back (like the other one). Is there something wrong with him or is this just a normal variation of body?

I just got both clowns 2 days ago. My first SW fish. Both of them seem to act the same.

Maybe he was injured somewhere in transit to your LFS or something. Is he tank raised?
If he eats and acts normally, I wouldn't be concerned.
So you have a unique clown...cool!!
Congrats on the first fish!! Are you qt them??

They are tank raised. No QT. Other than some hitchhikers and turbo snails, they are the only animals in the tank.

I'd say it's just a slight deformity. if he swims fine, I wouldn't worry.
