The mother ( and father for that matter) will eat the babies. I'd separate them and or add lots of hiding places for the fry

Personally if I see a fry that is deformed I feed it to my beta , not cruel because I'd rather not let the fish have to live with the deformity . +1 on the crushed flakes

No they will try to find a place to hide though.
