High palate: A high palate refers to the shape of the roof of the mouth. It indicates that the roof is very deep. This is usually associated with a narrow palate and mouth-breathing tendency.

Normal or syndrome: A high arched palate may be a normal anatomic variant or possibly related to one of 242 syndromes that have this associated with them. These include marfans, turners, and pierre-robin. You should check with your general medical doctor to see if you may have a syndrome as the can affect other parts of your body.
