Zebra Danios with crooked backs

I bought 6 Zebra Danios and one has a really crooked back. A few years back I had them also and one had a really crooked back then too. It seemed to do just fine for years and none of the others got crooked backs from him. Whats the deal?

Is it going to spread? It seems like its fairly common with these fish, I'm surprised its not better documented.

it is a birth defect and that danio should have been culled out after hatching

Poor guy. Should I put him out of his misery or is it okay to keep him? I don't want him to be in constant pain.
