Calves

I was wondering how to fix ankle size. I want to develop my calves bigger (which I know how to do) but my ankles are kinda fat right now. I am going to be in a bodybuilding competition in late January and I want my ankle size to go down. What is the problem?? PLEASE HELP!!!

Water retention or fat could be issues
and if so, are fixed by diuretics or diet.
It’s also possible to have thick ankles
simply because of being very strongly built.

If my ankles are not due to water retention or excess fat, then will I be deducted in the competition??? My body is very good all around, except for fat ankles. Also, can I build my calves enormous causing my ankles to look smaller, or will my ankles continue to get bigger along with my calves?? Thanx for all responses.
