Since it is painless, it can't be rheumatoid arthritis. I vote for diabetic neuropathy.

carpal tunnel syndrome, right?

It looks like his hands are cramped, but if he's not feeling pain... #5?

I think it is #4 because it is painless
Number 4 diabetes can lead to imputation

K, you got it right. It is not a cramp but is a permanent thickening of the tendon that pulls the digits into a contraction called dupuytens contracture.

ALSO - the left hand looks like he had some surgery to the median nerve - CTS release maybe. it looks like a scar

This one is easy a 1st year med student should get this off the bat, the patient being in no pain is the hint at proper diagnoses, it's dupuytren's contracture !
