Guppies with curved spine

Iīve bought some guppies last month (2 males and 2 females(I know this isnīt the correct ratio for breeding)), and one female guppy gave birth to around 15-20 guppies, most survived but some have curved spines (they also swim a bit funny), I had this problem some years ago and I posted it here but didnīt get any proper reply and couldnīt find anything on the internet about it, and now I can see more cases about it so I guess itīs a bigger problem nowadays. My problem is that I donīt know if I should separate the guppies with a curved spine from the other guppies and keep feeding them well so they can grow in a proper way but this way they might reproduce in the future which will carry on the disease. Or maybe I should let them die or be eaten by the others which will stop the disease from spreading. Does anyone know the best way to deal with this problem?
