Bestop vs factory?

When I bought my JK it already had a Bestop soft top on it, I am almost positive that it is the Supertop NX or maybe a replacement skin… i have noticed that the two rear "post" (support the rear window) are loose. The way the bow is shaped there is nothing there to support it … Looking at factory soft tops those areas are stiffened up with some kinda material… is there away to do that in mine ?

I started a post a few weeks back but didn't get much help or at least nothing I had not already tried. Here is a link to show pics of the area and bow.

Is there a nylon/seat belt type strap going from the center bow to the last bow?
If it is broken/missing/torn that would cause slack in the top corners.
