In brief: The most common
Symptom of scoliosis is an abnormal curve of the spine.
Often this is a mild change and may be first noticed by a friend or family member. Those affected may notice that their clothes do not fit as they did previously or that pant legs are longer on one side that the other. Scoliosis may cause the head to appear off center or one hip or shoulder to be higher than the opposite side.

In brief: Many diseases
Pupils are holes in the center of the iris.
They normally change their size according to the light. If light is bright they will reduce in size and in the case of insufficient light, both of them will enlarge. This is a reflex and simply cannot be controlled. Medications, head injury, horner syndrome (tumor in the brain), eye drops use.And many others.

In brief: Can be subtle
In many cases, the findings on a patient with even a large scoliosis curve can be subtle.
This is in part why schools will screen for scoliosis. The most common findings are an asymmetry in the hips and pelvis, an elevation of one shoulder, and a rib hump, otherwise known as an asymmetric trunk rotation. Thank you for your question.
