    Maybe it's the camera angle, but the bottom jaw looks abnormal.

    Try and take a pic from the front and a closeup of the side of mouth. It is probably normal just can not tell from the angle shown

    Nothing to do now, the lower jaw looks like it will need to be trimmed when it is older. Could also self correct over time. Pretty tortoise

    I believe if you post on a public forum they don't have to get permission

    Usually it's practice to provide credit. However, depending on the usage, how the image was procured, etc... there is a lot of room for the person to use it without issue.

    You will see many people watermark their images to aid in some of the usage issues.

    My friend that is a photographer experiences issues with his photo being reused and his watermarks being removed and such.
