Have you contacted GoPro? Could very well be a defective battery, but wouldn't know for sure unless you can provide more details such as the climate the battery is used in, how it is charged/discharged, etc....

A quick internet search indicates that "swollen batteries are often the result of overcharging, a faulty battery, or a manufacturing defect." I had the same issue in the past with a couple of them, I simply ordered a new set of batteries. I may be wrong, but I don't think that the people at GoPro Support knows why it happen.

I have 3 batteries but only one have this problem , this means that camera it’s ok
As @Kofla points out, bats get swollen for reasons. will not go into detail, if the bat is swollen, best not be sitting in the house. Number of reports, were the camera, and not staying near in person when camera charges, people go to sleep leave charge all night. The camera takes up to 4 hours on a depleted battery via the laptops 3 types of Amps it pushes out, Also PD charges to. cell charges, I. Uses a .5Amp. Takes the same time to charge. My bat up Less isssues

been in the Rc to learn fast charging is not good for any devices.
we’re just saying and its best to investigate eh tissue 1 or 100 batteries
