Aleyna, Terratoonie:

This is the common branch structure of this tree. However, these trees are usually hacked back to large branches because they grow so quickly.
It's a common practice with Ficus benjamina - Weeping Fig and Ficus elastica 'decora'. I absolutely hate it when I see them hacked back to just the main trunks.
