    Welcome to the forums and I am sure a few others will chime in here but this is my opinion
    It could just be misaligned as I have seen that before but never for more then 1 day. Is she yawning and trying to close it alot?
    I would try to offer her a small meal and see if it goes back into place after swallowing. If not a vet visit may be in order.

        any pictures of the mouth would help... but for now:

        is there any fluid coming out of the mouth or along the sides? saliva bubbles perhaps?
        any kind of lump under the throat area?

          you could try to see if there is any substrate or anything stuck in her teeth.

            If it hasn't realigned itself in 3 days I believe you need a vet visit. Sometimes they get a tooth stuck through the lip, but if her jaw is crooked she may have managed to injure it enough to where a simple yawn can't realign it.
