His left pec has like a little dent (only way I can describe it), is there a scientific name for this? Also is this what you would call a pigeon chest? The separation between his pecs is ****ing massive.
Is there a name for this? Watch

I'd say the dent is more to do with the musculature of his pectoral, I don't know of any specific name for such a thing, but really it's just the shape of the muscle showing through.
Pigeon chest (or Pectus carinatum) is a deformity, whereby the sternum and connecting rib protrude outwards. The opposite of this (Pectus excavatum), is where the sternum is abnormal and the chest has a caved-in look.
After spending many years of my youth worrying if I had pigeon chest (I had large gap between pecs), I can honestly tell you that is not a pigeon chest. That gap is normal, and like I said at the beginning, is just the general structure of the pectoral muscles.

It's just the structure, everyone genetically has different insertions of muscle, different tendon lengths etc. I have a similar gip between my pecs although not as pronounced.
