There are a number of syndromes associated with high arched palate and it would be prudent to rule out such systemic disorders. Please note that it does not have to be any of the disorders in the following link, but it will provide information: https://azdentist.com/conditions/high-arched-palate/#:~:text=High%2Darched%20palate%20refers%20to,that%20is%20present%20from%20birth.
