Missing Rib?

The bottom right section of my rib cage looks like it is missing a rib or maybe it's incomplete, I have no idea.  When I look at it there's a kind of indent.  I've noticed this for years but it never really bothered me except for sometimes I get an annoyance at the spot where it looks like a rib is missing.  Any information would be very much appreciated.
Thanks
btw i am a male not sure if that has anything to do with it

Look up a skeleton chart on one of the educational medical websites, or a chart of the bones in the chest.  It should tell you if what you are seeing is what is expected.
