In brief: Many possibilities

Some causes of abnormal nail growth include trauma, infection, side effects of medication, and possible systemic diseases such as psoriasis.
Have them inspected by a professional to determine the cause of the problem, as treatment varies depending on the diagnosis.

In brief: Not sure

If it looks white under the nail this is not a problem usually.
If it is white in the nail may be a fungal problem.
