Maya mesh merging problems

I have been encountering troubles trying to fix my meshs merges lately. When I merge my characters finger with his hand I get this weird line that shows. I just wish to know if there is a way to fix it and if so if someone could tell me how. The image below is what I am talking about.

Have you tried smoothing the normal?
(incase you are not sure where to find it, it's in Polygons -> Normals -> Soften edge )
hope that was of some help

Looks like your normals are reversed: Normals > Conform.

Also: Display > Polygons > Face Normals.

Try Polygon>Normal>soften edge after selecting the edge.

Also, make sure that you merge the vertices after you merge the mesh.

Thanks jgibz, turns the normals just needed to be reversed on the fingers.
