Thanks for sharing this interesting case. Lesser toe deformities in children can be quite common as they grow. Deviation of the toe is usually referred to as curly toe deformities and typically get better as the child grows and wears more closed shoes. Of course, it is important to exclude other causes like a local growth pushing the toe out or a fracture. If the pain from rubbing on the deviated toe is causing more pain, I would suggest consultation with a foot & ankle specialist.
