My right cheek masseter is larger than my left one and gives a very bad asymmetrical look. Is it by any chance related to my chewing habits? I think it is because of intentional chewing preference on one side and that side has more tooth decay than the other too. Should I chew more from my right side to reduce the muscle or should I chew from my left to reduce my right side? Im 15 years old. Thanking you.

Kindly get the teeth cured with filling or root canal treatment as per situation so that you are able to bite and chew from both the sides ...
You should chew from left side.
