See a doctor: Perfection is more hype than reality. Many people have asymmetrical features that can appear unusual or even " abnormal". You need to raise your concern to your doctor first. A careful review of your history with a physical exam are frequently all that's required to put your mind at ease. Your doctor can make the decision with you about imaging studies if the exam is inconclusive.
