Here's a step-by-step description on how to upload pics:

I look forward to the pics as I haven't heard of anything like this before.

The only thing I can think of is that you have Labyrinth Burmese.

That's the only existing morph that could possibly look like your description.

Pattern aberrations can also be the results on incubation temperatures and have nothing to do with genetics.

There is also a possibility that they were incubated too cold. I have seen this in the past but the snakes usually do not survive very long. I really hope this is not the case.

Kyle, I see you're advertising these snakes for sale as labyrinths.

I think that's a bit immoral as you're not even sure what they are.

Post some pictures so the experts can have a look and confirm for you before you sell them as Labyrinths and have a buyer demand his money back.

This is correct, as a result of insufficient heat to the eggs hatchlings will usually come out with these Lined or Zig Zag patterns, I have experienced this first hand with Kingsnakes, Ball pythons and Burmese pythons. Most of these do not make it full term/ live long because of the lack of heat they usually have disabilities/ birth defects.
Not all of these defects are visible to the eye; it may take a while to show, some wont.

My kings seem to being fine, they a year old, and one of three hatchling Burms will be a year shorthly. The two Ballpython hatchlings died shortly after their first feed.
I questioned the reason of death for both the Burms and the Ball pythons on one of the international forums; some answers from experienced python breeders,
it was most probably due to organ failure, the snake’s wasn’t able to produce digestive fluids, to big meal and they didn’t have the strength to regurgitate the meal, suffocation.... they lungs were to weak.

These are not Labybrinth Burms, an email was forwarded to me this morning, from a buddy asking about these pythons patterns. I had a look at the picture, what you have is Pretty normal Burms, it’s not a genetic trait

I think you should hold on to these Burms for a while. They shouldn’t be sold to an inexperienced keeper. They need that extra attention/ tlc.
