    Are these darkroom printed, C-41 negatives?

    Please be more specific and I'm sure someone can help.

    Looks like light leaks. If it is only 4 negatives, I would assume the processor/darkroom is to blame but agree with homburgers, we need a bit more information.
    Once a photographer is convinced that the camera can lie and that, strictly speaking, the vast majority of photographs are "camera lies," inasmuch as they tell only part of a story or tell it in a distorted form, half the battle is won. Once he has conceded that photography is not a "naturalistic" medium of rendition and that striving for "naturalism" in a photograph is futile, he can turn his attention to using a camera to make more effective pictures.

    I'd like to see the negatives, but judging by the one print shown, it looks to me like the film might have been rewound in the wrong direction. Why this would only appear on a few frames, I'm not sure; the one time I did this myself, all of my exposures were affected.

    That's a lot of blue lines there…

    I suspect it's more of a print-developing error. I can't imagine ever getting such uniform light leaks in a camera.

    The thing that I noticed first is that the lines coincide with the sprocket holes. That's why I think it has something to do with the film getting wound the wrong way.

    Looks like the photo has an overall blue cast as well. Probably a lab error.

    Also, your English so far is fine ;-)
