New at this but wonderful hobby. Is it ok to fold back top lip on these Waimea canyon Paphs?

If you try folding back the dorsal in the second photo you'll probably split it. It's OK to do if you like the look better but some Paphs just have a dorsal the is naturally very cupped. It will probably always bloom that way.

It looks to me like the plant just didn't have the hydrostatic pressure to fully deploy its segments. That suggests being too dry...
