Abnormal Feather Growth

Hi my name is Erica and I just have a question about my conure. He's 11 months old and he has been growing his feathers, the only problem is that one side seems to be growing a lot faster than the other. There is one feather that sticks out and it looks really strange. Is there anything wrong with him with him or is this normal? Please let me know, thank you!

This is probably normal. If you have not had him seen by an avian veterinarian, this is a good time. He needs a well bird check up and his polyomavirus vaccine. Then your Dr can look at those feathers for you, too.
