    LOL, Silkies have a vault or opening in their skull. Real nice Vaults normally produce good Topknots. But it does cause some problems if they really wack their head, but this is a Silkie thing. So as Silkies go, that one is one of the more desired types. [​IMG] You will get ones with big ones or hardly any at all when you hatch eggs, it just depends on the parents and genetics.​
