Hello, This is the structural asymmetry that might have been since birth you cannot do anything by yourself. Let the boy grow and he can get it corrected after he is 3. Because it is not too crept palate nor deviated septum but it looks like asymmetry. Just do mot get panicked some time it will regress by itself. It needs specialist intervention to do so. Thank you
