Several reasons: Bowing isn't the only reasons legs don't touch for instance a wide pelvis or a very skinny person may keep legs apart. If you do have mildly bowed legs a good athletic trainer can direct you in building the right muscles to make it unnoticeable.

See doctor or a PT: A doctor can examine your bones maybe check x-rays, the pt can do the same sort of exam.
