My nine year old daughter walks with her right foot sticking out at a 45-55 degree angle, like charlie chaplin! is this anything to be concerned about?

How long has she walked that way? This can be something called tibial torsion or femoral anteversion. Those causes should have made her gait abnormal for a while. She should be evaluated by her doctor or an orthopedic doctor.

If associated with pain, or fever, which is not listed in your question, would consider hip pathology, however without pain, would just have your pediatrician check her next visit.
