    too hard to tell off one picture.....if you look closely you'll see the head is not perfectly centered and the midline is not exact which would be more due to the fact the head is slightly turned or angled thereby giving you not a true cross-section but rather one at an angle.....since the head is roughly circular it would give that appearance.....you would need more than one picture to tell but no it does not look atrophied

    the problem with the gene pool is that there are too many lifeguards.....and we have been offering swimmies

    Doesn't look atrophic to me. Agree with above poster, need more and better quality images.
