My male Cacatuoides (Name is Beefchop) Has an extremely large bottom jaw. I got him last summer and this is my first time posting about it. Could it be caused by inbreeding?? Would love to hear yall's input on this. Thanks

Yes, the result of inbreeding/linebreeding in domestic strains. Not unusual. Especially domestic A. cacatuoides barely resemble the original fish.

He is large and old. A. cacatuoides have unusually enlarged lips naturally. As they age they grow larger. This occurs on both wildcaught and domestic specimens.
