In brief: Yes - usually

Epicanthal folds are an inherited characteristic common in central asian races - chinese, japanese, korean, eastern russians and mongolians.
It is not found in southeast asians such as vietnamese, cambodians, indians and indonesians. It may serve as a protective covering for the eyes and perhaps a sunscreen.
