Default Early ears also going up awkward?

My Gsd puppy is 13 weeks old, his ears have been up fully since 9 weeks and also I have noticed they go up straight to the middle of his head and form a triangle of some sort. Numerous people, including the vet have commented on it as strange, i just want some more opinions.

Perfectly normal. Take lots of pics this stage doesn't last long.

Look for "ear stages - a pictorial". There are lots of good pictures just like your pup's. What is his/her name? Really cute.

If the vet said it was strange, then obviously the vet doesn't have any experience with GSD's. it is perfectly normal. I would find a different vet.

Not strange - Sneaker had ears like that, we called her our little conehead. Eventually her head grew into her ears, and she looked normal.
