A small rib cage may not. However an abnormal shaped rib cage may lead to respiratory distress in future.

hi,
yes it is known to cause respiratory problem in future but it also depends on how small & narrow it is. but not necessarily everyone should have it. it also depends on how the body copes up with the chest.
