Default Abnormal legs in pup

I've noticed my pups stands a little funny he is 5 mos and His toes point out on his front legs. Is there anything I can do to help correct it or just help it? What health issues may come of it?

Nothing to worry about, known as " easy- westy" , just a difference in foot placement, some dogs just do it this way-

Probably just an odd puppy gait and foot placement and nothing to worry about. If his feet do naturally turn out a significant amount, there is worry about arthrits in the carpals later on in life from uneven wear and tear. I would just keep him on good joint supplements, glucosamine and salmon oil, once he is older. But he will likely be fine

Thanks for the advice. I read that it can get better as he grows? I'm hoping it does
