Hi Arsany,

Firstly check the hardness of the ball.  Press around it and see if it is really soft. It needs to be able to resist some pressure of your fingers.

Then you can also check if it is round.  Spin it with your fingers on a table like a Top and see if it is round.

We have an old video on this. Choosing a Ball.

Also check the branding.  Usually a 3 Star ball is better quality.
