Question Tarsal spurs

I was just wondering, Can some Male veiled chameleons have smaller or bigger spurs than others? Seems like some of the pictures I see some have really big spurs, and some are hardly noticable, but there....Is this common?

I guess some are more well endowed than others.

Oh and I am referring more to the youngsters, When they get older you know how they like grow with their body so they get bigger....Some babies just seem to have large spurs and some smaller...Is this true or possible???

I have a 5 month old, and he seems to have spurs, I can even feel them on the back of his foot, they are hard bumps, not just loose skin, but they are just small...

females dont have anything on the back of their rear feet, males have at least a bump.

Ok, I posted His pics here awhile back and everyone swore it was a girl, and said it might just be loose skin,But I feel bumps that are hard, and I ca see em too, they are just small, So I was just wonderin'...I also ordered him from a reputable breeder, and she swears he is male...Thats all I was just wondering if some just have smaller spurs...
