Thanks for writing to us.
The incomplete arch of C1 is not worrisome as long as you do not have any nerve related symptoms. This is not likely to deteriorate without an injury as the body of vertebra does not erode if there is no specific pathology at the site.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
