 Flat or curved

My sax playing has confused fingering a bit here and as, also a clarinet player, raises this query. I notice looking at the clarinet playing on You Tube that some players use flat fingers ( like bag pipes) on the keys while others use curved fingers with tips coming down almost vertically.
Is there a preferred choice? What do teachers teach? I think this subject is important as best means of quickly covering the holes completly is paramount.
