Hello. Thank you for posting.
We can't know what this might be with any certainty. You would need to see a podiatrist. A possible cause might be splay foot. Splay foot is a deformity characterized by broad, flat feet that oftentimes turn outward like duck feet. The condition happens when the metatarsal bones begin spreading out like a fan, leading to a widening of the forefoot making the toes look flatter or spread out.
