    Can anyone tell me what type of comb this?
    Is this just a bad single comb?

    Is it a bad single comb? Why does it only have a couple points?

    Maybe it'll get more points when older...I think I heard the ideal single comb is 5 points but could depend on breed

    Not all single combs have the same number of points. Ideally, you do want (for most breeds, with just a few exceptions) five points on the single comb. But, no bird is perfect and many have just a couple points or seven or more.
