No. The physical appearance of someone with Turner syndrome is quite variable. In fact, the diagnosis can be overlooked until middle childhood when the kid is short enough to require attention, or when a girl doesn't have menses at the expected age.

No. Though a common association with ts, some girls are less affected by ts and may not present with neck webbing.

Or something else. There are other causes of neck webbing that occur in people with normal chromosomes, as does variations in pubertal onset and eventual breast size. You should avoid trying to self diagnose and seek out someone with the training and experience to help you. Medical geneticists are usually affiliated with medical schools or children's hospitals. Find one and set up an appointment.
No. Fused bones of the neck (cervical vertebra) are not common in patients with turner syndrome.
Webbing of neck. The "webbing of the neck" is just used as a description of one of the physical appearance in Turner's syndrome. It is the appearance of a wider than normal extension of the neck at the based of the shoulder, making it look more like a triangle from behind. It doesn't have any consequences, it is only the appearance in this syndrome.
