Hello, I am new to table tennis and I picked up the penhold grip since it felt the most natural, but after some time I realized that i couldn't close the blade on my backhand (traditional backhand). After trying a few grips and a bunch of index finger pain, i settled on an unusual grip in which the index finger is mostly straight and laying on the rubber and my thumb is laying on the wedge at the end of the handle (my blade has about 1.5 cm of gap between rubber and handle).
My question is if this grip will affect my progress in the long run and if i should change it.

This might help. Quite eye-opening. See 3:09.

One thing I've learned from the video is that the penhold grip changes as you move from forehand to backhand. The racket rolls around in your hand to make the closed bat angle on the backhand, and the thumb moves up the grip (at least with the Japanese variant).
