though your question is not very clear I guess you are worried about snoring. there are many causes for snoring such as
1. obesity
2. short and bulky neck
3.deviated nasal septum
4. bulky adenoid and tonsils in the throat
5. thick tongue base
6. retrognathism
7. atonic soft palate
8. any other problems related to nose

obviously treatment depends on what problem is causing snoring in you. treatment can be grouped as follows
1. weight loss decreases snoring significantly. atleast 10 percent of weight reduction is necessary
2. change in sleep positions
3. nasal and palate prosthesis
4. sclerosant injection into palate
5. palatal surgeries
6. tongue base surgeries
kindly consult nearby ENT specialist or sleep surgeon for further help
