We investigate the hypothesis that the (random) crystal of the (-)-phase inside the (+)-phase of the 3D canonical Ising model has flat facets. We argue that it might need to be weakened, due to the possibility of formation of an extra monolayer on a facet. We then prove this weaker hypothesis for the Solid-On-Solid model.
