    I've never heard anybody calling it anything in particular... but to describe it, you could say the inner side of the elbow, I think the medical term is "medial", but I am not sure.

    Полагаю, что: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flexion

    Если верить моему словарю, то в медицине flexion - это сгибание, extension - разгибание, то есть оба слова обозначают процесс (ну, или состояние, как следует из твоей ссылки), не место. Так что вариант Индры мне кажется подходящим.

    "The crook of your arm or leg is the soft inside part where you bend your elbow or knee.
    She hid her face in the crook of her arm."

    from one of my dictionaries
