What is causing my round jaw?

My jaw seems pretty round and idk what exactly is causing this. I think my forward growth is pretty decent although my midface might have some recession. I thought maybe it is testosterone related or lack of chewing hard food causing my ramus to be shorter. maybe you guys know..

 

thanks in advance 🙂

You have excellent forward growth. If you want to lengthen your ramus, chewing will do that. Teeth contact may be important too.

I think with age his jaw will grow out. I think chewing will only further decrease the distance between his gonion and ear. If we take prehistoric man as an example of a lot of chewing you may notice that while their whole ramus seems bigger, the posterior ramus becomes very short and the gonion very round.

 

Yours probably basing your advice on the chewing thread, if so be careful to not miss the fact that only muscle CSA was measured, I think it's logical that bigger bones lead to bigger muscle area. If anything it seems to me that bigger bones cause bigger muscles, not the other way around.

@auxiliarus thanks for your message. So when does bone growth for your skull approximately stop, cause I'm already 20.

Idk, like 35? Most of it happens pre-18 though.
