yes, it is a stunted discus. They are all the same fish, just different quality. The first is how they are SUPPOSED to look. The second is more typical hobby grade. The third is horrendously stunted. If you look at the eye size, it is the same in all three pictures.

I should've explained it in the first post itself.
To tell you- I clicked the images at a LFS. And all of them were in the same tank.
Discus is the most beautiful fish in the hobby, but maintaining it would be the toughest job in the hobby.
