In brief: Normal variant

I don't think we really know the answer to this question.
I am not aware of any significant pathological association. This condition is typically not "corrected.". However, it's possible that plastic surgery may offer some alternatives.

In brief: Inverted nipples

Most people who have inverted nipples are born with it.
Gentle massage several times a day might help the nipples to stand out.
