Does baby seem satisfied with the left? Is your right side in pain or uncomfortable? Unless baby isn't making enough diapers or you're in pain it's not a real issue, just an annoyance.
Ds was like that for a while because my larger side had some forceful letdown issues, so he mostly nursed on the other side. Have you tried side lying while baby is asleep? That's how I got him to start comfort nursing on my left instead if my right.

It's not uncommon at all. If you are engorged pump to relieve pressure. Baby might not like that engorgement. Keep offering in different positions, and especially at night or when he's almost asleep. Even if you end up with very different supplies in the 2breasts, as I did, your left side will produce enough for all baby's needs.

Don't worry about it. Really. It's primarily an aesthetic problem. There are mastectomy moms who can nuse just fine with their remaining breast.
