Why is "parents" sometimes written "orang tua" and sometimes "orangtua"? Is it optional?

I notice 'orang tua' here omitted the space, is this a typo or acceptable practice

Is there a relationship between Diduk and Didukung?

'dukung' is the base word.
https://kbbi.web.id/dukung

dukung/du·kung/ v,
duduk di punggung atau di pinggang orang:

'to sit on someone's back/waist'

mendukung/men·du·kung/ v
1 membawa sesuatu atau seseorang di atas punggung; menggendong:
2 ki menyokong; membantu; menunjang:

'mendukung' is the active verb.
The first definition is the literal one: 'carrying someone on your back'.
The second definition is more figurative: 'to support, to help'

Should "is being supported" not be accepted as well?
