Lulav Queries

Question:
Is there a chissaron in Hiddur with regards to a Lulav:
1. If the tiyomes is totally joint but has Kore on top between the tiomes (not covering it)
2. If one tiyomes is slightly higher than the other – and from how much is it considered a chissaron in hiddur

I would be extremely grateful to know the Rov`s opinion in this

Many thanks
Answer:

1 Some kore in between will not disqualify the lulav but does detract from it’s level of hiddur.

2 If it is a small amount – not easily recognisable – it remains mehudar, more than that detracts from the hiddur.
