If your soft palate is very thick, say about 2 inches from top to bottom, can that cause breathing and gagging issues? How to fix it?

In brief: Possibly

If the back of your throat is crowded from a thick soft palate, large tongue, large tonsils or excessive neck fat you can have sleep apnea or other breathing problems.
See your doctor for evaluation.
