Default typical or not

I asked this in the body of a thread but got no answer:
If a buck is really symetrical, say a 10pt (5x5) but hasmatching drop tines (same length and locations) are the drop tines deductions when scored as a typical, or can they be counted towards a typical score?

They are deducts. The only tines that are considered typical is if they grow upward off top of beam.

I may be wrong but I believe any point that is not growing from the top of the main beam is considered an abnormal point, as well as points growing off of other points.
