Looks like letter V: This is most easily determined by a dentist when he examines your upper jaw. The upper jaw/teeth in a normal arch shape resembles the letter u; a narrow shaped arch resembles the letter v. This picture looks like the letter u. With a narrow palate, your face might appear to be very thin and narrow.
