No need to fix: A narrow palate usually doesn't have to be fixed unless it causes a problem with the bite (the way the teeth come together). If there is a malocclusion problem, this is fixed by the orthodontist using braces usually. The tongue will then not seem so wide. It is very rare for an adult to need tongue reduction surgery.
