I have been looking many things up about squatting with toes straight or out. If anyone has ever heard of Kelly starrett he says squatting with toes straight is better because the athlete will have more torque and be in a better position when squatting. When I squat my toes point out. Is this not right and should I fix this before starting the program?

Yes, you should squat with your feet straight and with a full range of motion. Here is a 3 part video with everything you need to know about this topic:

Squatting with a full range of motion will help you with this. As your start the program concentrate on this as you warm up and when you are doing the program work to make sure your feet remain straight forward and you try to keep torsion in the knees. As you progress through the program your strength and mobility will increase that is one of the best things about the program it is designed to help you improve on all facets if done correctly. Including mobility. If you work hard this should be something you can correct as you go just make sure you are focused on it.  When Brent talks about full range of motion he is talking about going down as low as you can without loosing your back positioning and keeping torsion in your knees. Continue to work on getting lower and lower this will only help increase your mobility. 

Good back squat form!

This is an example of good front squat form. Vertical torso, elbows high, knees in torsion. His right foot appears to have turned out just slightly but his knee is still in torsion. Still try to fight to keep feet straight.
