Does this Rummy Nose Tetra look normal?

I got 10 Rummy Nose Tetra from Aqua Huna today with two DOA. The rest are really small, but one in particular looks a bit different. I am worried that he has a deformity, but there is no way I am going to euthanize him if he does. I just want your guys opinions on what you think?

No that's not normal. His belly looks sunken in. I don't know if it has a deformity or not though.

Could that be from not eating for three days, or something else? Parasites? I have general cure, should I dose that?

I don't know really. I'm bad at fish disease. I just knew it wasn't right. Maybe A201 has a suggestion?

Thank you for your help. He’s not swimming much with the group, and looks like he’s not going to make it. Is this something that could affect all of the fish? Sorry for asking questions you may not know, just worried about the whole batch being infected and putting them in the main tank in 2-3 weeks

Various troubles with newly purchased Rummynose are becoming common topics on the fourm.
It seems the general consensus has been genetic weaknesses due to poor breeding practices by the suppliers.

Oh man, that is a shame. They have quickly become my favorite tetra/schooling fish. I just put six from QT into my 55 gallon planted, and man, do they look awesome!!

I know I love them too. I bought about 24 and ended up with 6 They don't guarantee them for a reason unfortunately.
