What Causes this Type of Jaw/How to Achieve it?

*Sorry if this is your 3rd time seeing this thread. I privated the first one and accidentally posted the second one under Case Discussions*

Hey everyone. I've been wondering what exactly causes this kind of jaw. The type of jaw in particular some may call a "bicylce seat face", it appears to have prominent masseter muscles and a long, slim, tapering, almost "scooped-in" chin. Some celebrity examples I have include Pete Davidson, Timothee Chalamet, and Shawn Mendes.
If it's worth noting, both Pete Davidson and Shawn Mendes had braces when they were younger. Shawn Mendes was also a mouth breather when he was younger and I occasionally see Pete Davidson mouth breathing. I'm seriously considering mouth breathing right now to achieve this kind of jaw as I am still a teenager with braces lol.
Anyways, if someone can help me that would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Also, doesn't mewing promote wider, more square jaws as opposed to these narrow, angular jaws?

Just take a look at one of the Orthotropic practitioners.
