I'd my fish please

I got some small koi fish to begin growing them for my pond and I know I have at least two butterfly but my third seems a lil lack luster for a butterfly even though he was sold as such. I love him either way but I'm just curious if he's more of a standard koi or maybe even a carp.

Butterfly koi were actually originated from a very plain classic carp with long fins, it took time before they got lucky with the beautiful colors and beautiful fins so my advice is to just watch the fins, very nice.

I can post some pics of the other koi I have in about an hour. The previous pictures are of a last chance supposed butterfly koi the owner of the shop brought him to my attention because he knows I will take in less than perfect fish the front right side of his face droops very bad and not sure if it is due to abuse or birth defect so the shop owner said he wasn't pet quality but the others I have are. I have two smaller koi and another ready for the pond once it warms up a tad bit. The ponds deep enough to support fish for the winter but putting new fish isn't a good idea till it gets a bit warmer out.

Here are some pics of death stokes face that show the way his mouth comes together and opens he does have one set of whiskers as I think I said earlier but they curl into the corners of his mouth due to its odd formation. Sorry if this is a lot of replies for only a couple simple questions.
