Good afternoon, I started 10 seeds, all germinated. They are starting to grow their first set of true leaves. Two of the seedlings have 4 leaves, is this a rare occurrence?
The one pictured is 12 days old.

TIA, Joe

Joe,
This can happen and when it does, it can mean that the seedling will produce two growth points or ramifications. This would be a good thing.
