Yes, from the photo provided the chin does appear weak. Chin augmentation with a chin implant would address this issue. Size of the chin implant will depend on an in person examination and you should not need to tell an experienced plastic & cosmetic surgeon what size is required. He/she should know what size to suggest.

Your photos are inadequate to determine the best size chin augmentation - see a board certified plastic surgeon.
What size chin implant?
So, naturally, it is difficult to assess the correct size for a chin implant for you based on your photos alone. The best advice would be to select a surgeon in your area experienced in the technique to discuss the options with you in person.

I believe you could benefit from a chin implant. Generally a 5-7 mm enhancement will suffice. Donald R. Nunn MD Atlanta Plastic Surgeon.
It appears you could benefit from a chin implant. Better pictures are needed to recommend size. Consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for an exam, and to discuss your options.
Most plastic surgeons have the ability to morph your profile photo to simulate a chin implant. Upload some photos shot from the side at my website and I will do this for you.
