Is it normal to feel a tendon around the lower part of the fibularis longus move when bending my toes in?

To some extent: The perineal tendons run just distal to the fibula and you could potentially feel the moving as you flex your toes/foot. If you have any concern, do not hesitate to be checked. A simple exam should be able to tell if their is anything abnormal going on.
