Hi,Jane thanks for query.Every individual is different, and depend upon his or her structure some bones may be prominent,some are not.As long as you do not have any problem with this there is no reason for concern.It is just like one having long fingers and one is not having it.Do not worry,enjoy the life.
wishing you good health.
