Hello , I just bought 1.2 Trioceros jacksonii xantholophus and was wondering if this is normal that females have 3 little horns , the male has much bigger ones, but still, look at the photo(2 females there). Females also have horns just small ones. I'm wondering if theese are actually 3 males , just 2 of them are smaller or if it is not Xantholophus but Trioceros Jacksonii Jacksonii.
Please help :)

I don't own any xanths but they have very different spines on their backs than the Tjj. They have little triple clusters of spines while the Tjj have very distinct individual spines. Those pictures are small but I think I see the clusters.
You can check out this link for examples.

Chamelophlaged is right those are little xanths and you most likely have 1 male and two females but it is still possible at this age that they could be slow developing males. I wouldn't bet serious money on them until they are 6 mos. old.
