Default Split Lip

I was reading the Boxer Standards the other day and noticed my Boxer has a fault (as per the standard). As he got older his top lip under his nose seemed to spread a bit and not sure if it is attached or fully split but often looks red in colour.

Wondering what would cause this fault and why it is considered a fault in the standard?

I only wanted a pet puppy anyways but just was intrested to know, both his parents are champions and wondering what in the gentics makes this happen?

Faults

Lack of nobility and expression, somber face, unserviceable bite, Pinscher or Bulldog head, sloping top line of muzzle, muzzle too light for skull, too pointed a bite (snipey). Teeth or tongue showing with mouth closed, drivelling, split upper lip. Poor ear carriage, light ("bird of prey") eyes. Wry mouth, that is when the upper and lower jaws are not in parallel straight lines.

Gee, I thought all boxers had this little split with a pink line. At least all I have owned had it. I think it's cute!

I agree I was surprised to find out it was a fault.

My dog has the same problem in the last month (8 months old) his upper lip is starting to split. I wasn't sure if I should take him to the vet to get it stitched or it was normal.

They all have split upper lip,I think the mean overexageration or spreaded crease
