To get the best branch structure, you will want to take off 1/3 of the top. This will help promote branching. Perhaps when it was cut, it is possible that not enough was cut to destroy apical dominance. (Apical dominance is the tendency to grow a single leader branch.)

Here is an article on their care: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/pear/how-to-grow-an-asian-pear-tree.htm
