In brief: There

There are some things such as marfans that is associated with long fingers, if so there is a need for an evacuation by his pcp .
Some have only a few traits and do not have a disorder. Its difficult to say more from your description.

In brief: By

By "high-arched" are you referring to the webspaces--the skin that joins the fingers together toward the palm? Do his fingers appear shorter than typical fingers? Is it all the fingers or just some of them? Increased webbing is called syndactyly and can take on a variety of forms and severity.
Usually it involves just 2 fingers. Most people born in this country have them separated at an early age. Short fingers are called brachydactyly. There are some syndromes that cause brachydactyly, sometimes with syndactyly. Do some researching and find out if the finger abnormality is associated with a syndrome. Some of them can have heart and kidney problems, so it can be important to know. If you are serious about this guy and would consider having children with him, you might consider genetic counselling, depending on what the codition is and whether it can be inherited.
