Hi there!

The dents you feel is likely to be due to the overlying muscles and tendons and unlikely to be due to osteoporosis. Osteoporosis would not cause irregularly shaped bones unless very severe or associated with fractures. You may however still like to have this examined by your treating doctor.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
