Is this a dialectal thing? Cyn ddrwyg a+ is what I've learnt...

The single-word version cynddrwg (as bad/naughty) is the correct one, regardless of dialect. Not a terrible error to make, though!

Similarly, cystal (as good) and cymaint (as large/big) and a couple of other less common ones.

cyn lleied (as small) is the common one where the two words remain separate.
