    Their combs look normal to me! Different types of breeds have different types of combs. It looks like a pea comb, which is completely normal. He's adorable!

    He looks to have a straight comb as welsummers do, but seems to have some points over to the right side at the top. Not all have perfect combs, but hopefully it will develop normally, especially since he is young.
