thats mostly congenital and probably not much worrying , but must once have a c-t scan of head done along with a neurologist opinion to rule out possible abnormal causes for large left head. shape will not change what ever posture u go for.

Welcome to HCM.
You do not have to be worried. Some of us do have such shape of head. What is more important is what is within it. It is usually seen that persons with unusual shape of head are blessed with sharper and more intelligent brains than most of the usually shaped heads. Since you have no other problem than the shape, leave it alone and do not try to correct it.
