I have a TrendNet 432BRP router with a static ip set up on it.
It shows my static IP address when i use ipconfig/all, but when i go to IPChicken or WhatsMyIP, they both give me the same IP, but the IP they give me is not shown in my Ipconfig, and therefore, not my static ip. Where is this ip coming from and should those sites show my static ip?

Thanks in advance.

IPConfig reports the internal IP (between PC and router), not the external IP (between router and internet). They will never match.

When you go to a website your IP is shown as the external one. This is normal behaviour.
