Is that inside ridge rubbery? Id scrape a bit with my hoof knife and have a look see. When I have come across this several times before, it was actually a sort of false concavity. Almost always on the back feet but I did find it on a front once also on a horse that was really upright.
It was essentially just a built up ridge of really thick rubbery white line that separated from the wall but stayed nice and tight to the sole. The wall was also usually flaring out or separated as this one is also. It is very deceiving. I take it back down with the nippers just as tho it was overgrown wall leaving just a hair above the real sole (sole is usually quite flat for some reason on feet with this) making sure I keep proper bony alignment and it goes away after while. If you allow it to get too tall, you will end up with a negative palmer angle pretty fast.
