Is this normal I've never seen it before Twins from one Tomato flower?

Checking on my Black Krims I found one fruit that looks like it's forming 2 separate fruit, if you look closely one is obvious the other has the falling flower stuck to it, I didn't want to pull it off and damage the fruit it's stuck pretty good.

There is a name for this. It is called catfacing and is caused by improper pollination due to weather conditions. The following picture is of
