Am I measuring my IMW correctly?

I'm not sure if I am measuring my inter molar width correctly. I did watch Mike Mew's video on it and measured my tooth molds and they came out to ~35.5mm-~36mm (38 and up is considered ideal). Yet I don't have any of the problems associated with narrow dental arches. All 4 of my wisdom teeth are comfortably intact with additional space behind them. I can retain good oral posture comfortably and subconsciously (fits on the back roof of my mouth).  I have never had any issues with crowding or crooked teeth. Though I do have gapping and flaring (the main reason I am interested in mewing). My mew line indicator is 38mm (supposed to be 38-42mm). And looking at the mirror, I don't seem to have many facial development issues to speak of. I can post pictures for critique as well. The reason I am interested in mewing is mostly for dental reasons and not facial aesthetics. I just don't understand how my inter molar width can be this narrow but with few facial/oral problems to speak of.

Thanks for posting this link. I will try this technique. Though he says this with regards to the bite marks: "These are teeth #7 - wisdom teeth's gone up to heaven."

So are we supposed to measure our 7th row of teeth or the wisdom teeth? I have been measuring my 6th row.

I am quite sure you have to measure your first molars not your second ones. I had some doubts about it too but a video of orthotropics explains it very well. I dont know about this rhyme guy tho
