how should a hermanns tortoise shell be? mine has always had a reasonably flat(ish) shell but my local pet shop are selling hermanns tortoises around the same size as mine, but the bumps on there shells are twice the size of mine. am i doing something wrong?

no you must be doing everything right your hermanns shell should be flatish if the shell is lumpy this is called pyramiding and the tortoise is being feed wrong and growing to fast this can leed to very ill health.
