Mine curves inwards a bit as well, just bear with it and keep on playing with it, I used to think that was my limitation, but since I started using it, it has become a central part of my playing.

my pinky and ring finger both curve inward and my index points inward in the other direction.....all of which doesn't help my reach when it comes to playing....but I don't think it's ever prevented me from ever being able to play anything. It mean you have to practice a little more, but you're probably able to play anything anyone else with straight fingers can. When I first started playing guitar I took lesson for a few years and I brought up the fact that my fingers were all a little crooked and my teacher said, "I've seen a guy play guitar with his feet, so I think you'll be ok".Oh, and don't forget that Django Reinhardt played with only two fingers....well, if these guys can do it, then we definitely can:
