I'm not going to make an Internet diagnosis, but when I got my ig as a rescue, he had a broken toe that looked like that. What kind of set-up does your little guy have?

The one I had was fed too many carrots-almost all carrots and a bit of lettuce, no UV light or supplementation. He was also kept with improper humidity. As a result, he had skin problems, but more importantly, he had the beginnings of metabolic bone disease resulting from calcium deficiency.

I've been working with him and four months later, all of his bone issues have healed, but he still has a slight underbite that comes from MBD. He needed proper UV, plus I give him natural sunlight in a mesh (not glass) basking cage, a proper calcium rich diet, daily baths for his skin, and short term meds from the vet to treat some other issues he had.
