I'm just 14 and I don't know if these are malar bags?

I see these little cheek bag on both sides of my face. I don't think they're under eye bags because they're more on top of my cheekbone. I'm really self conscious and I don't know if it's because of sleep issues, allergies, salt, or if it's just permanent? Are they permanent?

The cause of lower eyelid puffiness

There are many potential causes for the puffiness that you seem to be experiencing in the lower eyelids.  Sleep deprivation is a very common cause.  Allergies and sinus infections can also be involved.  If you are predisposed to these conditions, salt restriction can be helpful.  I suspect that if you get good sleep, good nutrition, and good exercise you will experience a nice improvement.  Good luck
