In brief: Kyphosis

cervical kyphosis is an abnormal alignment of the spine with the neck tending to pitch forward.
this can cause pain or even neurologic symptoms with pinching of the spinal cord or nerve roots.

In brief: See your doctor

Cervical kyphosis is a reversal of the normal cervical curvature (which should be lordosis).
This could be due to injury, muscle spasm, or congenital defect. It is quite unusual. After your doctor investigates, referral to a physical therapist to instruct you on a customized exercise program should help.
