Crested Gecko Jaw Problems

Hello Crested Gecko Forum Members:
I'd like to request any information and/or suggestions that forum members might have regarding a problem with our Crested Gecko. Seems that our Crested Gecko has come up with a "lower mandible" problem. The lower jaw/mandible now seems to show significant signs of "flexing" and as a result of this tends not to close. The lower jaw does not appear to bend at the hing of the jaw but instead several (mm) anterior to this--and it tends to hang, droop and look like a flap. If mamually closed by me, it remains closed. However, if it tries to feed then it droops. I am assuming that this is NOT common. Any advise would be greatfully appreciated. Once again, thanks to all Forum members for any and all suggestions and advise.
