That is what I was thinking because of the orange eyes. But was thinking it might be a platinum snowflake because of the black lines at end of all the white making it a occy?
Maybe a hybrid?

I had a Flurry clown, A. Ocellaris that kinda looked like Platinum. The main argument for it being a Flurry or a hybrid is it's rounded shaped body. Not quite stubby though.
Platinums offered for sale nowadays have more slender and slightly elongated bodies. They are actually quite hard to look at for that reason. Most are slender with pinched heads.
Here's a pic of my Flurry clown (bottom) and regular Frostbite (top) clowns that I had 2 years ago.

It look like a deformed clown to me.
For me, clown shape have to be 1/2 way normal first. Color and patterns are secondary.

What is wrong with the shape? Deformed?

Deformed means not conforming to physical appearance of their wild caught counter-parts. A vast majority of tank raised clowns have deformities such as flat face, pinched heads, protruding jaws, flared gills, shorter fins, stubby or slender bodies to name a few.
