In brief: Length of neck...
How long or short your neck is doesn't have much to do with swallowing.
.. It's what inside that counts. If you're having difficulty swallowing food, feel that food is getting "stuck" halfway down your throat, or that it often goes down the "wrong pipe"... Time to see your doc! they will examine you and might do a "barium swallow" to see how well the food moves down your throat. Best of luck!
