Do You Think I Need a Chin/jaw Implant ? Maybe a Genioplasty?
Please share this answer, with your parents since you are under 18 years of age. The only photo, supplied, that's appropriate for evaluating your chin is the profile view which shows a slightly weak chin. Chin Augmentation with a Chin Implant would address this issue if an in person evaluation confirms what the photos appears to show. Jaw Implants are problematic and would not be recommended.

I would wait before getting a chin implant because of your age. I would consider the chin implant if your teeth (occlusion) are well aligned. No way to tell this from the pictures you have submitted. The cost varies from $5-7K depending upon geography.
