I know that my chin is pretty badly recessed which is very discouraging, can I fix this with mewing or am I a lost cause

 Im sure others can give you a more precise evaluation, but from your side profile its evident your face has grown down and backwards. You don't state your age, but the common opinion here on the forum is that its unlikely that you'll see any significant skeletal change from mewing alone after your face has stopped growing (age 12).

@Pame

I don't think that's the common opinion.

Pretty much everyone on this forum are both over 12 and attempting to create significant skeletal change. With Jamo and Achilles being good examples of what is achievable with diligent work. Achilles' face has observably changed and he is 27!

I think a more accurate statement would be that we don't know what is possible when you're over 12. There's simply not enough evidence either way. People can definitely increase their IMW, they can definitely increase their airways, fix tongue posture, and stop sleep apnea.

I think having changed all these, the skull bones moving over time isn't a stretch of the imagination.

@mewing4ever You look like you're under 20. The most drastic change I've seen from mewing is by a guy that referred to himself as Jamo, or neveragain on this forum. He started mewing when he was 18, and firmly believes that it's possible to change the structure of your face within a year - less time the younger you are.

So by no means are you a lost cause, you're actually probably in a better position than most on this forum. So mew away!

@bugs I agree that we don't know for certain whats possible to achieve through mewing after the age of 12. As far as I know there are no documented cases where theres been actual skeletal change from mewing alone. Pictures taken at vastly different angles and with different lighting posted by some random guy on the internet do not prove anything. When there is no scientific evidence to suggest that mewing can produce skeletal change in teenagers and adults, the most reasonable assumption to make is that its not possible to affect the bone structure of the face through mewing for those age groups.

It depends, do you have space between your front upper and lower teeth? Can you jut your lower jaw forward? Do you have an overjet?

That is correct. I asked Dr. Mike Mew in the second Q&A if he was going to pose new examples of skeletal change in adult and he ignored my question.
