Gary, based on the picture, I'd say it has a combination of conditions.  The crest is a bit large, the standards are a little short (in proportion to the falls) and it appears they are a bit relaxed or open.  Each may contribute to what you see as stumpy.  Notice I didn't say, 'problems.'  Most will not see this as a problem.  It's a lovely bloom.

This flower is either short & fat hence it's name STUMPY - or it has the largest style crests I have ever seen - you decide . Sort of makes it an interesting conversation piece in the garden ( even if I'm talking to myself ) .
