I'm 18 is it possible for me to get a crossed eye if I don't have one now?

In brief: Rarely

Most typical cases of strabismus (cross eye) are diagnosed in childhood.
Later onset of misaligned eyes can be a sign of a cranial nerve palsy (weakness), thyroid disease, or the result of very poor vision in one eye only. You should see an ophthalmologist for diagnosis and possible treatment.
