Please let me know if there is any way to reduce protruding forehead?

Doubt it: Theoretically one can reshape the skull but practically it will do too much damage to the brain to make it even worth a fleeting thought.

I was wondering is a protruding forehead really the sign of a more developed frontal lobe?

Not necessarily: Frontal bossing is an abnormal enlargement of the frontal bone.
