|This might sounds weird, but "odd ribs" were one of the things my mom always liked to point out to the vet when patients would come in. She was always palpating them and would get all excited when she felt something that was out of place. For the most part, there was never anything wrong with the pet, their rib just wasn't exactly in the right spot. The vet would always palpate it, or look at the xrays and tell her that she was weird for being all neurotic about rib abnormalities .
Mom's sister's cat had a weird rib. They think he might have broken it as a kitten and it healed funny. He never seemed bothered by it. I think in your case though, it's probably just a normal part of the anatomy, as Beau said.
Hugs to all the abnormally ribbed kids out there! My mom wants to know if she can come pet you
