Bent…

I read this post by LauraKim and the first thing I thought was ‘ No way!  She has funny fingers too!’

I have what we affectionately call “Hoffmann” fingers after my fathers family who mostly all have them in varying degrees of crookedness.  My father and his father both had them, my brother Cliff has them too but my brother Matt doesn’t.  Aaron doesn’t have them either.

My baby fingers are bent inwards at the tips and have been known to freak out young children on occasion.  I also have crooked pointer fingers but they are not as bad.

And now, ladies and gentlemen, for your viewing pleasure, my baby fingers!

    Hmmm, is this not normal? I just put my pinkies together like your pic and they are also skew!!! Also my right pinkie is wayyyy bigger than my left one. Will have to do a post on my odd fingers now. 🙂

      I always thought I was the only one!
      Right through childhood I was the only one and the kids were always soooo freaked out…
      So cool to see so many people with similar fingers.

    I’m 16, and my baby fingers are like that 🙂
    I like to call them butterfly hands ;]

    Because, if you face your palms towards you, make them touch at the baby finger, and then fold over your other fingers so that only the baby fingers are sticking up, it kinda looks like a butterfly 🙂

    I have these baby fingers too! I was just looking online to see if anyone else had the same. Mine comes from my mum’s and grandpa’s side – I wonder how the gene developed.
