hello. Since you are very young, please do not avoid ur gait problem and go directly to a MD phys or a neurologist. It needs reflex examination and detail case taking which is not possible here. u may be completely normal or u may have some kind of illness......

It seems that you have some bones problem as you have hunchback,bent and short leg.
This is the reason you have some gait.
Consult orthopedic and go for investigations to rule out Ricket or other bornes diseases.
ok and bye.
