Default Leo runt just hatched, help???

I could not believe it when this egg hatched, I had almost thrown it away. It was very small and had majorly collapsed. but from what I have read decided to leave it and see what happened, thankfully.
Its so small compared to any of the others i have hatched.
Should i be worried?
There seems to be a large bit of the egg sac still popping out of the egg, is that normal? did not notice that from my other babies
Im no expert on morphs, but was pretty sure i wasn't going to be getting any visually different babies.
The father was a Blazing blizzard and mother either a bell albino or pinstripe.
What is it?
Your knowledge would be most appreciated.
Thanks.


Notice the egg sac


The normals

Can we see pics of the parents? I am not 100% sure on what it is but that might help us to identify it.

I upload photos etc first here before they are on the forum, also it is easier to contact me there as i am on there more than on the forum. You will also get to see the babies for sale before the whole forum does so it is worth your while!

small yes but there's every chance that given good care and attention it could fill out nicely

I don't know how you house your hatchlings, however if you house multiples or clutch mates together, I would suggest you didn't with this one.

As Sleepy has said above, it may be small, but given the right care that will be a thing of the past.

Thanks for the replies!
Generally I house them in pairs but will defo just be keeping this one on its own, and keeping a close eye on it.
Here are the photos of the parents as requested.

Father

Either of these could be the mother

Haha! That's what you get for having a sneaky quick read of your phone at work.
She's always had pink eyes from when I got her at a couple months, also a good bit of lavender on her.
