Like how do their nails stay square while their hands grow? Like they grow up, that i know, but how do they also grow wide?

Do you mean how does the nail get wider in proportion to the rest of the finger? The nail bed is alive, it contains cells that produce keratin for the nail, just like hair growth from a follicle. The nail bed grows with the finger just like any other body part, and so as it gets larger, the nail it produces does too.

His nails grow fast. Even before he is born. Its just genes man. The body is magic. *(not like the card game or the nba player) i just mean like really miraculous magic how this shit works so well.
