I am 17 and have drooping eyelids, is this normal? I look into the mirror and without lifting my eyebrows you can't see my eyelid on the right side.

In brief: Depends.

You should seek consultation with a facial plastic surgeon to determine the nature of your issue.
This could be from excess eyelid skin (dermatochalasis) or from brow ptosis. You could also have unrecognized levator muscle dysfunction. Each of these require different treatment strategies and should be evaluated by a surgeon experienced in these procedures.
