True percula clowns or no

Are they true percula clowns or are they the other kind (don't know how to spell it)

These look like Occelaris clowns to me, I'm no expert but the Percula typically have thicker black edges in between the white and orange.

Ok I wasn't sure because I looked up pictures on google and some looked similar or even identical to my clowns and had mixed thoughts

Like I said, I'm no expert, but I have heard that from people I trust and that have been in the hobby for a very long time.

Clowns don't know what they should do, they just kinda do. I have 4 different pairs of clowns 2 host nothing and just roam the tank, 1 pair host the corner of the tank, and 1 pair actually host a nem.

Clowns can take forever to host and even then may not. It's all just random
