For years i have thought that i have a pigeon chest, although i havent seen a picture of Pigeon Chest on the internet that looks like mine, so now i am having my doubts. However my chest is very embarassing for me, my most unliked part of my body.

I was hoping someone could help me figure out what and why my chest is the way it is.

The lower portion of my ribs on both sides stick out quite some, i can actually give the appearance that i have breasts (pointy ones at that). Also my sternum is not flat, nor stuck out (like with pigeon chest), it is instead indented, i have a pocket/hole where my sternum should be. The pocket is deep enough to consume around the bottom half of a giant marble, or a tennis ball can sit in it quite comfortably. Just lying on my back pertrudes my ribs out up into the air.

If anyone could help me with this, greatly appreciated.
