I looked it up, bc I don't understand what the big deal is. Everyone has those muscles- for some people they are extended & cause issues but for most it does not. This article explains it well.

I wouldn't care too much if it was purely cosmetic but I'm really wondering if its the reason behind ds1 speech issues. He is high level but he has issues with pronouncing some sounds. Is there a way to tell if lip/tongue tie are the reason?
