I have noticed more lately one of my frontal bones stands out more on one side especially in pictures. Is it normal to have a prominent frontal bone on one side?

Facial bony structures are highly prominent in individuals with low body weight. Individuals with normal body weight or overweight have adequate or in excess of sub dermal tissue fat, which makes the bony prominences less prominent.

Hence there is no reason to worry if you have a proper facial symmetry.
