Pregnant, in second trimester, ultrasound showed baby with recessed chin and prominent overbite. Indication of micrognathia?

I am concerned about my baby boy 2D ultrasound at 20 weeks, and my 4D ultrasound at 22 weeks. They both show what seems like a recessed chin and overbite (duck-like upper lip that is really prominent...). It looks nothing like the other ultrasound I ve seen on google...Both baby s father and I are caucasian and have full lips , but no overbite. I am really worried that this might be an indication of micrognathia or something else. Please advice. Best Regards,

you didn't mention whether the finding is told by your doctor or it is your interpretation,
normally according to early scans we cannot come to a conclusion, as the thing change on progression of gestational age,
it at all there features of micrognathia your doctor might have told you about it,
so you once discuss with him the possibility.
take care.
