Did you notice that he’s not got creases on two of his fingers on his right hand this time?

Thankfully the medical experts over at Reddit had an answer for the strange deformity, they speculated that the Rdelly’s brother’s fingers had fused.

Rdelly_21 replied: “That must be the case! He cannot bend them at the distal joint of those two fingers.”

Other Redditors were less helpful…

Other Reddit users used their collective medical experience to wildly speculate that Rdelly_21’s brother could have a joint disorder called Arthrogryposis.

Arthrogryposis is a condition that makes it hard for people to bend certain joints and can cause deformities in some cases.
