In brief: MV prolapse

yes, a person with mitral valve prolapse can have normal blood pressure.
Depending on the degree/severity of the mitral valve prolapse, and the experience of the doctor, it may or may not be detectable with a stethoscope. An echocardiogram can diagnosis the severity of the mitral valve prolapse.
