From the side my goldfish looks like it has a dent in its head. Is this normal or bad? And what can I do about it if it is bad?

He is eating normally and his fins aren't clamped to his sides like a goldfish that has parasite problems. I really have no idea but I'm pretty sure goldfish aren't supposed to look like this from the side.

Do you know if this is a change? Did your goldfish, at any point, look "normal?"
I really don't know what could cause that. Not sure if goldfish are susceptible to lateral line syndrome (hole in the head), but that may be a possibility.

Now that I look at him with his mouth closed he looks more normal. I was just wondering though.
