It can be associated with overall growth of body, if you are having normal weight and growth, you should visit an orthodontist, there are some appliances to guide the growth of mandible during adolescent age, it reduces the chances of having braces in future, don't delay and visit an orthodontist.

Hello there.  I can understand your concern.  Everything will grow propotionately. Jaw alone cannot increase in size but yes, a little bit increase can happen and will happen. Males continue to grow till 21 yrs of age. For further help you can consult a orthopedician in person for further evaluation and management.  Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore
