I guess it seems cute to them, but they should follow the Ashkenazic minhog if they are Ashkenazic Jews, which is more respectful to the holy Torah, instead of giving a finger to the sefer Torah.
In general, this is representative of a larger phenomenon, which is problematic, of people finding some custom which seems cute to them and adopting it, at the expense of their own tradition/mesorah. Cuteness and style are not supposed to be the determining factors in minhogim.
The custom you are talking about is a Sepharadic custom. Ashkenazic minhog is, as brought down in the Rama in Shulchan Aruch, to bow toward the sefer Torah during hagbah.Once I heard that I stopped doing it, but I cannot remember who told me this and have not been able to find any reference to it.If anyone can track this down or confirm or discredit this I would appreciate it.For some reason the pinky pointing has become a fad for some people.Maybe they picked it up in Eretz Yisroel, or in other places where they came in contact with Sepharadim.
