I just realized her latch changed eta pic in replies

Baby's a week shy of three months and I just realized that her latch changed - her top lip no longer curls out no matter what I try. Her bottom lip still looks like duck lips just not the top. Do I need to correct this? She's still emptying both breasts without issue.
I also read a little bit about nursing manners, what is a good age to start? The only issue I have with her is she whips her head back without unlatching.

Would she have lip tie if she was latching correctly before?
