I got this new glove, but while I was watching some videos of youtube of gloves, all the gloves don't have a ridge down the middle of the glove.(Around where the part where you close it is.) I was wondering if there was a fix for this or if it was because there was an error in the process of breaking in.

    You might want to include a picture, and some additional details. What kind of glove is this? (Infielder's glove, Outfielder's glove, First basemen's mitt, Catcher's mitt, Pitcher's glove... see Wikipedia for details)

If this an unused glove you need to properly form it. There are many methods but I always used neetfoot oil to soften the leather and then placed a ball in the pocket and kept it there when not in use. The photo appears to be a bit of a "roll" in the pocket standing up. Just oil it to soften and use it and see if it forms to your liking. I am not saying it is not a good glove but the high quality (and high price) gloves are easier to work with new
