Welcome to the forum. Any place is a good place to ask questions.
Rippitoe has said many times anyone can learn to squat deep on their very first day. He said in in his seminars, virtualy 100% can squat properly the first day.
So chances are it's not your body that's causing the problem, but your form.
When I started, I also had some trouble until I learned to get my knees out of the way. It's not enough to point toes out, your knees have to follow them out too. All the while keeping your chest up, too btw.
To learn this get a dumbell and goblet squat. I think you'll be surprised at how that forces your knees out and you'll sit right down in a full squat.
Hope that helps! Let us know how it goes.
I am Anton Zdravko Martin!
