In brief: Toe nail

Depends what caused the condition.
If fungal it would need to treated with an anti-fungal medication or with some type of debridement. The nail may have injured in the past and need surgical correction. An ingrown nail may cause a local infection and should be removed by podiatrist.

In brief: Depends on the cause

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.
