Are siamese twins common in fish birth?

My silver molly, jewel, gave birth to about 30 something babies and 3 are stuck together at the stomach... two were still-born but one of them is trying to swim around and I can't tell if the one on the bottom is even alive at all...this is the first time I've seen this...i doubt there is but is there anything I can do about it?

I don't think you can do anything about it. I would recommend you put that/these fish to sleep. It's not going to lead a healthy life. But if your interested to see if you can raise it, I'd say go ahead.....

Let us know if it survives.

Just watch and wait, but there is about zero chance that they will make it past 14-21 days of age...this sort of thing happens infrequently, but most such babies are born/hatched dead, or die within hours.
