Have Bell's palsy, one month so far but noticed my eye brow on side of paralysis is higher than the normal side of face. Is this common or normal?

In brief: Bell's palsy

Yes.
The seventh cranial nerve controls movement of the facial muscles. Paralysis of the face can lead to an inability to close the eye. It is important to protect the eye at night with eye ointment and a patch to avoid injury. You should start to see recovery soon and continue over the next six months.
