Lines over cheeks
First, I doubt that your problem is caused or can be resolved by your sleeping position. Additionally, as you mentioned your mother has these too. This is likely a hereditary issue and there is nothing you have done to make them appear or worsen.
I would recommend a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss the treatment options. Often in patients your age minimally invasive treatments, such as fillers can help mask the problem.
