I'm far from an expert but some sort of African jewel I'd guess

Looks like the turquoise jewel cichlid (Hemichromis bimaculatus)

I agree with jewel cichlid but not sure which one. I'm pretty sure they hybridize as well if thats a possibility for these fish

They are the bimaculatus if they came from DrRick. They are way too large for guttatus or cristatus and the color is not there.

Weird looking for a Bimaculatus. Head proportion. Dorsal fin.

Is that something that happens with age or breeding season?

Ted Judy is the expert on identifying west african cichlids.He gave a talk here several years ago He lives in Wisconsin or Minnesota .I dont have his email but perhaps someone else does(try Dave Ramsey )if you want precise identification. I agree these fish look a bit different with thicker and less elongated bodies that most Jewel cichlid species
