Nails that curve over are just that.  Clubbing is when your fingertips look like spoons at the end. I have a friend who has clubbed fingertips and it's VERY noticeable.

here's sum pics




In the first pic it looks kinds normal, but in the second pic, the nail isn't flat from a side view, it's sorta raised. Also what was your friend's condition if you don't mind me asking?

Also I glad that you have beat cancer, it is truly a blessing :)

lol what are they then? I've never seen nails like mine and they sure aren't normal.

The nail curves downward, my fingers aren't clubbed but the nails are strange and look like claws when my hand is relaxed and my toenail looks like the raptor claw from Jurassic park. It's been that way since 11th or 12th grade and I'm 22 as of now

Not everyone's nails look the same.  If they have been that way since high school, its probably just the way yours looks.

You may have a mineral deficiency too.  Take some biotin
