    Its not life threatening i dont think, but there is always a gap in her beak?

    She eats and drinks normally, but is this something I should be concerned about? Will it get worse? Is it fixable?

    You could trim the bottom beak back if it gets to be an issue for her.
    She's adorable. Love the picture you took of her doing her dance. >_<

    It could end up being a scissor beak, which normally there isn't much you can do about that. It could just end up a little crooked, in which you could try and trim it.
