There's an indentation across the middle of the nail on my big toe and a one in the corner of my other big toe?

In brief: Many reasons

There are many reasons for indentations and lines on the nails, but the most common cause is trauma.
Injuring the nail bed especially at the base of the nail can cause temporary and permanent ridges or indentations. I recommend you see a podiatrist to have them evaluated if they are not improving.
