Sometimes referred to as ‘square faced’ a wide jawline can cause a lot of self-consciousness, especially for women as it can be seen by some as a masculine or unattractive trait.
A wide or square jaw is basically a jawline that is larger and more square in shape than the average.
This condition is caused by a combination of things but is mostly simply down to genetics. Other factors that can cause it include ‘Acromegaly’ which is a hormonal disorder that develops during adulthood, causing your bones to increase in size.
Also, the prominence of the masseter can play a part in causing a wide jaw, which is the muscle we use to chew our food. For example, if you chew gum a lot, or suffer from Bruxism – this could be the cause for your wide jawline.
