A superior mouth is a mouth that opens upward, with the lower jaw more anterior than the upper jaw. This is an effect typically seen in fish. Some humans are born with this defect, often making their face resemble a shark's. This usually means that the fish feeds from the surface of the body of water in which it dwells.
