What breed is she?Please attach the pictures, when you are able.

This is certainly not normal and the breeder was quite negligent in suggesting that this was not a defect. Have you had this limb x-rayed? Did they? Have any diagnostics been formed? Any diagnoses?
Based on the second picture, I would be apt to agree. Have you had this limb x-rayed? Did they? Have any diagnostics been formed? Any diagnoses?
This typically occurs in the rear legs, I would be apt to think otherwise for this reason and the fact that this is a bend and not a twist. That said, when there are closely bred lines we can certainly see deformities like this with less rarity.At this point, I don't think there's much else that can be determined without veterinary involvement. I am disappointed to hear that this breeder did not have the kitten worked up before placing her, especially since they claim the kitten is perfectly fine. I would go this route if she were my own pet. At very least, you will learn what is wrong structurally and if any options for treatment exist. This can be a good preventive step for the future, as well, if early onset of arthritis might be suspected.
