Possibly: There are some syndromes that have Oral-Facial growth problems associated with congenital heart problems. You should seek a diagnosis from an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon or Cardiologist.

I would also recommend consultation with a dento-facial growth and development specialist, an Orthodontist.
