Ask to look at other students' mutants for comparison. Don't you have
wild-type flies as a control, so that you have some reference for what
normal bristles look like?

Some phenotypes differ, some don't (I'm assuming you mean young adults vs.
mature adults). If you look at your flies when they're young and then
again when they're older, do you see a difference?

Have you asked your professor or TAs about this?
