Or something else: There are other causes of neck webbing that occur in people with normal chromosomes,as does variations in pubertal onset and eventual breast size. You should avoid trying to self diagnose and seek out someone with the training and experience to help you. Medical geneticists are usually affiliated with medical schools or children's hospitals. Find one and set up an appointment.

Palatal trauma: The simple causes are snoring with palatal vibration that may be forceful, or excessive throat clearing with the palate. However, in the absence of traumatic bruising of the palate, one has to be concerned about spontaneous bruising or ecchymoses of the palate. This could signal a systemic condition, and a thorough evaluation is warranted.
