Why is there a difference in the jugular vein popping when singing high notes. Whether the human jugular veins different from one another?

Pressure changes: Neck veins distend when we lie with our head lower than our heart or when we strain.

My toddlers jugular vein seems to be much more prominent on one side than the other. Had a normal echo as a newborn. Does that indicate a problem
