Does rock naturally jut out in narrow spikes like that?

Look really closely at the area above the shadow and then look at the edges on the shadow. Is something growing off the edge of this rock? Does rock naturally jut out in narrow spikes like that?

Completion of the orbital insertion placed the orbiter in a highly elliptical polar orbit with a period of approximately 35.5 hours. Shortly after insertion, the periapsis – the point in the orbit closest to Mars – was 3,806 km from the planet's center (426 km from its surface). The apoapsis – the point in the orbit farthest from Mars – was 47,972 km from the planet's center (44,500 km from its surface).
On September 29, 2006, MRO took its first high resolution image from its science orbit. This image is said to resolve items as small as 90 cm (3 feet) in diameter.
On October 6, 2006, NASA released detailed pictures from the MRO of Victoria crater along with the Opportunity rover on the rim above it.
