3 questions on mezuzah: short reigh/daled; gimel; peh

I was shown this mezuzah.

3 questions:

1. How short is too short for a reish or daled? Here are 3 examples found:

2. Gimel: I have seen a gimel like this before (see image below), where both regalim seem to come from the gag, where as I understand it, it would be pasul. Here the left regel comes out of the right regel, but very close to the gag where it looks like its coming out the gag. Would this be a sheila l'tinok?

3: Peh pshuta: thoughts?

As always I would appreciate your thoughts.
