The pics would definitely help! In recent years I’ve stopped thinking of the ideal thumb position as “high” and started thinking of it as a natural position for the thumb that occurs when the wrist is neutral and not bent as in the attached pic. The video link will explain what I mean a little further. (Incidentally neutral wrist position can look very different on different bodies, and of course as Kim points out thumbs vary quite a lot as well…) Not sure if this is relevant to your particular situation (or the same in all technical approaches) but will check back for pics 🙂
