In brief: Chin reduction

If your bite is correct, but the chin and jaw appear to be protruding surgical intervention can still be a good option.
Under the care of a skilled surgeon, some of your chin can be reduced in size to give the appearance of a less protruding jaw.

In brief: Jaw

It could be that by mistake or intentionally, the teeth were positioned to camouflage the deficiency in the mid face.
Therefore, either the upper jaw didn't grow as much and giving a lower jaw pseudo protrusion look or lower jaw is truly longer. Another possibility is macrogenio , which makes thing more simple and simple sliding genioplasty can resolve it.

In brief: Chin surgery

If the teeth fit properly, the chin is probably the "problem".
Chin reduction surgery can often solve this area. See an oral surgeon who can examine you and discuss options.
