In brief: Possible

Yes, its certainly possible.
It really depends on whether its primary or secondary. Your ophthalmologist would be able to let you know after examining your eyes.

In brief: Possibly

The anatomy of your eye structures, from eye color to the size of your angle is somewhat genetically determined.
I would recommend that you get regular checkups from your eyemd to see if you have a shallow anterior chamber or an occludable angle.
