Phal schilleriana disease?

Does anyone know whether the ruffling/irregularities at the edges of the petals of my phal schilleriana's first blooms normal or indication of a disease?

Sorry about the rotated photos

Could be nothing more than low humidity and/or underwatering leading to reduced turgidity when opening.

I'd chalk it up to a learning experience and not worry about it.

Not sure what would cause that, but still a pretty phal!
