I am 18 years old. Since birth I have a kind of problem. I have a kind of stuck tongue. Like, when I extend my tongue out of my mouth, it doesn't come out to be pointed in shape with actually should come out. Instead of that point shape, it looks like a a slight curve or flat in shape when I extend it. Though I don't have any difficulty in talking. What's all this about? Is it common? And what to do?

Some people will have thier tongue stuck with the mouth from their birth which we commonly reffered to as tongue tie (ankyloglossia. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment.

If you don't have any complications then you should not be worried... It should be normal.
