My bird has a turned out toe.

My 4 month old conure I just got has a turned out toe.. so its his left foot and is front smaller right claw. It turn like this

|/` /\ Sorry if my little drawing attempt didn't work but I do have a photo of it. He finds it difficult to grip on perches. Is there anything i do that can help or is this something that will fix itself. I have been helping him on perches and trying to manually help the toe curve properly to grip but it doesn't seem to be inproving at all.. i have him on calcium powder as well has fresh fruit and veg with seed.

Thank you for your question,

In order to get a better idea of the case, would it be possible to get you to send in a better angled photo of the toe.
