Misaligned finger after PIP fracture

I was in a car accident a month ago that caused a fracture in the PIP joint of my right ring finger. A hand surgeon operated on my finger to put the little piece back and attach it with nails until it heals.

Before the surgery I noticed that my finger is misaligned to the right and my doctor said there is no way to fix it, although he didn't really know why it is off to the side. He then said that it is probably because of the fracture and it should get fixed after the surgery. However, even after the surgery, it is still misaligned.

I thought may be it is rotated a little bit that caused the misalignment.

I am wondering what the reason is (misshaped bones, hurt tissues around bones, ?) and if there is a treatment option for that.
