Mid cheek crease

Hi, I don't think you have a festoon, what you see is mid cheek crease/nasojugal groove. It is generally genetic and people can have it even at a young age. Some will put filler in that area to try to improve it but there is a ligament that holds it in place so it tends to persist but can be improved. Get a consult for a full assessment. Good Luck.
