Unhappy Rib cage deformity

Hey, would just like to know if i do have a recognised problem. My rib cage apparently didnt seperate at birth but the midwife and doctors said it would do so naturally. However i find myself at the age of 17 and my rib cage has developed into a strange shape with the bottom of the left side sticking directly outwar by an inch or so. Furthermore at the top the centre line of the rib cage is well over to my right side . It would be helpful to know if there was anything that could be done as i find it uncomfortable when people ask, 'what is that sticking out'. I am about the average weight for my height, so wonder if putting on weight could help however i am a keen sportsmen and do not think this would be the correct course to take. Any help would be appreciated...
