Dwarfism?

The calico is Rosie and the peach one is Lester Flatt Jr.

I think my two kittens are dwarfs because the are eight months old and look like a 2 month old kitten. I can hold them each in one hand yet they weigh about 3 lbs and are not malnourished. They have not grown and I am worried about them how do you tell if they have this dwarfism?

Some cats are just small.

My cats, twins, were once able to be held with one hand, but after after a few years became heavier now they both weigh about 8-10 pounds. One is a runt but she still has caught up to about 8 pounds on her. They are just mixed cats though so I don't if a pure breeding would make a difference.
