    propagate by leaf cuttings it and see if the mutation is evident in the offspring! Weird!

    That happens to almost all of my smaller vft's especially the vft's with thinner leaves. No biggie, give it good conditions and it will go away when a few leaves grow.

    My Big Vigorous looks like this. I think Crested petioles looks like that as well.
