    My banty's comb has paled during her molt, which I think is normal.
    However, it has folded over as well.
    Is this normal? Will it return to its upright position when she has finished molting?

    Thanks for your input...

    Completely normal, and yes it will return to it's previous condition once the molt is completed - with some birds complete 'recovery' may take a while.
