Post/send photos, and I may be able to advise.
I place my little finger there strait not bent it just feels natural and more comfertible when I try bending it I simply can't play what to do?
I'm a firm believer that "one size fits all" is a delusion. Straight may indeed be best for you. But I'm not sure how straight you consider "straight", nor what sort of bend you consider "bent".
When I bend in my little fingers, it's almost entirely in the last (tip)
joint, but also mainly when I play the highest notes. When playing the lower notes, either my little fingers are straighter and pushed toward the closed end of the finger plate (I don't call it a "rest", because my fingers aren't resting), or they're bent but pulled toward the open end of the plate.
As I've described often before, I generally hold the (English) concertina by "gripping" between my thumbs and little fingers, not by "hanging" it from my thumbs.

If your hands are small and you play with your hand flatter, you might have the little finger much straighter. Do what works for your hands.
