is there any reason why kittens eyes open at different times?

    Flossy's kittens started opened their eyes at 5 days old. by 8 days all but one had their eyes open properly except one. he has started opening his slightly today, day 12. i've read that normally it's long haired cats that open their eyes later. now Flossy has had a semi long haired kitten before as Daisy/Titch (Faith's mom) is semi long haired and is Flossy's daughter. could this be what is the reason for his eyes taking longer to open or is it normal for any kittens to take longer. if there is a chance he is long/semi long haired how soon would i notice his fur? here's a few photo's of the 'family' for you to see:). the first one is the kitten that is only just starting to open his eyes.
