No, bones does not flatten.

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for the query.

No, the cheekbones or any other facial bones does not flatten by pressure or pulling..

The bones in adults are hard and strong enough to retain their shape and structure..

So such movement of bones of face/ skull that are a non-mobile like cheekbones is not seen..

Please write back for more queries..
