You may have a tongue tie that needs to be surgically cut, by a professional practitioner of course, but you also may just have a tongue that has gotten used to resting on the bottom of your mouth. This would result in a lifetime of muscles that have not been exercised or put to use and need to be retrained. I wouldn't give up hope just yet. I have some questions and advice for you which will hopefully help you.
1) What happens when you do the cheesy smile swallow? Does your tongue go to the roof of your mouth?
2) I would accept that your tongue is the way it is at the moment, but continue to try and strengthen it as best you can. Here are some exercises…
3) Try and suction your tongue to the roof of your mouth by sucking the tip of your tongue to the roof of your mouth just above your top front teeth and then swallowing pushing the back of your tongue up into the soft palate.
4) This exercise may be difficult for you at the moment, but give it a try…
5) Try and inflate your tongue like a balloon. The tongue is a muscle which has the ability to expand. Even if you have tongue tie, you should still be able to do with this with practice. I can actually see you start to use these muscles slightly at the 2o second mark in the video you posted.
6) Another option is to see a myofunctional therapist. You can see one online here…
