It is very difficult to know without pictures. The nose can change with time as the skin "shrink wraps" to the underlying architecture of the bone and cartilage. Sometimes this can lead to differences in the appearance of the nose. You might want to have a consultation with a facial plastic surgeon if it really bothers you. Hope that helps!
