Are puppies born with jowls or do they develop as the dog gets older? My mastiff seems tight lipped now (like a pit) can that change with time?

I'm not sure if this would be a breed specific question, but my dog has had droopy jowls since I got her at 16 weeks, however they have gotten more droopy as the ages. She's now 21 months.

Ok, so I went to take another look at your pup, she does look a little "tight lipped" IMO, but it looks like that could be due to the breeding, her sire/dam don't seem to have the more "exaggerated" jowls that i've seen in some boerboels. I think she'll turn out nicely! :)
