More convention than standard. There are standard connector types, most started as some manufacturers spec, 0.1" square spacing double row the most common, usually square pins, ( this is mostly a manufacturing consideration, especially related to how the female contacts are made - stamped from thin sheet), but 0.157 (? that's from foggy memory ) isn't that rare, and the dreaded 0.2mm ones are used when some bright eyes wants to save a tiny bit of space.
Higher power connectors usually mean larger pins, wider spacing, often round pins ( to match more robust machined sockets ).
The other convention, that Rasp Pi violates in the name of price, is that power flows out of female connectors.
( Yeah, I blew up one Pi when the pins touched a piece of EMT. )
