my thumbs dont match. one is pretty normal, not that girly and the other is short and fat after the nuckle. the nail looks more like a shield. im wondering if anyone knows anything.. just curious it doesnt bother me. ive met a few other people with my thumb but theirs match.

  • It is called a hypoplastic thumb - purely a "lightening strike" of congenital formation which results in a loss of some length and development. The thumb is critical for function in the hand and I would not recommend anything other than just enjoying it as it is. Painless, looks a little different, but vey functional and sensate (with good sensation.)my thumbs dont match. one is pretty normal, not that girly and the other is short and fat after the nuckle. the nail looks more like a shield. im wondering if anyone knows anything.. just curious it doesnt bother me. ive met a few other people with my thumb but theirs match.
