Lips don't meet in the middle what are the options

You can get some corrective gum surgery to move the lips down. The other option is to move your whole jaw bones in the upper teeth upwards with what is called maxillary impaction and orthognathic surgery. Don't worry there are people out there that can help.

Short upper lip, excess gum exposure

A specialized procedure can be done from inside the mouth wherein the supporting structures of the upper lip are lowered by resecting a piece of the gingiva (gum).

Lips do not close

You need a full maxillo-facial evaluation.

See a plastic surgeon with training in cranio-facial surgery for full evaluation , measurement of the maxilla, and the mandible.
