I bought a pair of KSO's today. My first pair of toed shoes ever so im not exactly sure how they are supposed to fit. The people at the store wern't much help either. They knew nothing. Anyway my first 3 toes fit in the shoe perfectly hitting the top snug and tight, then my fouth toe is below it, and slightly below it when I tighten the strap and push the shoe a little foward. However my pinky toe in both shoes just doesnt seem to fit snug like my other toes, and in my left foot my pinky toe even seems to push against the side of the pinky slot vs beign snug like my big toe for example.

The size of my vibrams was 41, and my average shoe size is 8-9.

Basically im jw if it is supposed to be like that, if my toes are just retarded and I have to suck it up or stick with a no-toed shoe, or should I really do the hour drive back to the store and try on a lower size?

That's common if you wear tight shoes or socks. If you go barefoot or in thin flipflop sandals your pinkeye's toe will separate more

Im gonna put some duck tape around both my pinky toes at night hoping to separate them from my 4th toe. Also I noticed my left pinky toe seems to curl up a little bit more naturally then my right.

My pinky toes used to hug their neighboring toes and it was actually quite painful as I transitioned into VFFs and forced them to go back where they belong.  Give it time, they will adjust and you will be able to wear VFFs pain free.

So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact and remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act.
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. 
And never mix up your right foot and your left.

Yup mine too. It took a couple of weeks until they started to complain less and less. And a few months until it stopped feeling weird. But now my little toes don't give any trouble at all and they are much more separate from their buddies even when I am fully barefoot.
