Toddler's toenails haven't grown

My son just turned two and I have never cut his toenails. They are just as short as the day he was born. His toes are larger of course so I assume that his toenails had to grow some to accomodate a larger toe but nothing has grown over the edge to be cut. The tops look worn out and ragged. His fingernails grow but at a much slower rate than my older sons did when he was little. I find this odd and couldn't find anything on the internet about it. My son has a few minor health problems (interior polar cataracts, small patent foramen ovale, FTT, and chronic constipation that the doctors still don't have a diagnosis for). I didn't know if it was anywhere related to any of those (I really don't think so) but as I said I thought it was odd. Have you heard of a child whose toe nails don't grow? Is it normal?
Thank You,

Cheryl Davis
