Ok to be different: Mom is correct. A little more or less bent with the curvature of the spine compared to someone else is the equivalent of saying your lips are a little thicker or thinner than someone else's...it's the way you're built. However, if there is doubt as to whether or not your spine curvature is normal or not talk it over with your parents and see if they can take you to a doctor for an opinion.
