Awkward Double jointed thumb

Hi everyone,
My name is Stephen and am new to the community.
I am currently consolidating the beginner course and am having trouble with my fretting thumb, which is double jointed. Basically in order to form the mini f barre chord, I use an unconventional part of my thumb, instead of the pad. This makes changing chords very difficult, but it’s hard generating enough strength as my thumb bends so far back. Perhaps a picture will help and apologies if it’s a bit freaky looking for some. Has anyone else experienced this and do they have any advice? Thanks in advance. Stephen

Have you tried the Thumb over the top? Looks likr your thumb is long enough to do this

Thanks for this. Will give it a try, although I see a difficulty with my mini barre when I try this initially.:+1:
