Some people just have long toes. Everyone is different so maybe this person had a defect in their genes. Or maybe that's just how they are....

What is more normal long or short toes?

It is normal to have 5 toes on one foot. I am a podiatrist and beyond that, I have seen every variable. Also, when you ask about long and short toes, I think you must mean the length of toes relative to each other because short, stubby toes are unusual. Most people seem to have the great toe longest and the other toes shorter than the great toe (the hallux) in descending order--2,3,4,5. Some people have a long 2nd toe and this is considered in some cultures to indicate royalty. The statues at Hearst castle all have long 2nd toes. If your 1st, 2nd and 3rd toes are of equal length, you'd have an easier time en pointe in ballet. So, to answer your question, I would say, neither long or short toes are normal as the human foot shows much variety.
