It doesn't sound normal to me, but it's difficult to say without seeing the plant and fruit. I suspect the pepper plant has a virus. I cannot find a photo of the problem with the exception of the following website. It is a slide show presentation and photos of peppers affected with virus are on page 54. Why not leaf through the publication to see if the symptoms match the peppers you are growing? Here's the website:

Hope you find it helpful.
