One of my goldfish that I've had for 2 years now was perfect when I bought him... A few months later I noticed what I can only describe in human terms as a cleft lip :) It's like his top lip is either not there or inverted or something. Looks like there a hole where his top lip should be... As a result his bottom lip sticks out. Maybe he's got bulldog mouth? :) I'm experienced enough to know it's not any disease like mouth rot or anything. He eats fine, but he's never grown as big as the other 2. Perfectly healthy though, and 2 years old.

Any ideas? A genetic dudd maybe? Ever seen this before?

Like you said probably something to do with genetics. Seen this in a few different fish but if it's happy and healthy then i would'nt worry,
