Ive seen it both ways.
I shot a buck we had on cam for 4 years. He went from an 8 to an 11 to a 13 to a 12 the year I shot him. 1.5 was a typical 8, 2.5 typical 10 with double brow, 3.5 typical 12 with same double brow, and 4.5 was a typical 12 with out the double brow, it didn't break, he never grew it that year.
Have also seen progressions where they look identical from year to year just bigger and older.
It's hell eatin em live
