In brief: See an eye doctor
New lid droop always needs to be evaluated.
Although most of the time it is benign, there may be conditions that have to be addressed. Often, medical or surgical treatment can help, so don't delay seeing an eye doctor.

In brief: Ptosis
A droopy lid can be secondary to a number of causes.
The most common cause is age. Depending on if you have any other eye findings with it will help to determine the cause. You should definitely see your eye dr for further evaluation.
