As Cosmo explains, fish gape is where it’s at now:

Nowadays, if you scroll through your Instagram feed, there’s a new pose: It’s open-mouthed and slightly toothy. It’s the cooler, more flattering replacement for the duck face, and it’s called “fish gape.”

So, “open-mouthed and slightly toothy” seems to be fish gape’s main characteristic
