If the end of your xiphoid is really pointed is that normal?

a pointed xiphoid is normal.

Xiphoid is derived from the Greek meaning "sword shaped." The ancient Greek swords were short with a sharp triangular tip.

In infancy and childhood, the xiphoid process is a separate bone. It is composed of cartilage but begins to harden (ossify) in adolescence and fuses with the body of the sternum between 30 - 35 yrs of age. Mild discomfort upon pressure is normal.

More commonly there can be tenderness at the points where the ribs join the sternum, a condition that can be due to mild inflammation called costochondritis. Sometimes pain is more intense, even mimicking a heart attack.
