This problem of overlapping toes is rather common in children, but the not so good news is that it very rarely corrects itself. Your son is already walking barefoot which is always a good idea in children with overlapping toes. Simple measures such as exercise or physiotherapy do not usually solve this problem of overlapping toes. It is usually necessary to see a paediatric orthopaedic surgeon about this.
