It has turned out to be fairly flat - unlike the initial images. See also www.spaceweather.com ... (12th February 2019) for the same story (and https://phys.org/print468910585.html )...

The larger lobe resembles a pancake and the smaller one is shaped like a squashed walnut. The new images are a puzzle, it would seem. How could Ultima Thule have formed. Naturally, EU has a theory. Moqui Marbles are found in the Utah deserts - stone balls like small eggs. A comparison has been made with Iapetus, a moon of Saturn (as captured by Cassini). See the first link for these ideas.
