Think of these clouds as "eddies" or "waves" in the sky. They form when two layers of air are moving at different speeds. The top layer is moving faster than the lower layer. Causing the tops of the clouds to curl under. ypically the atmosphere is very turbulent which easily forms the wacky wave clouds.
