If your upper and lower teeth don’t touch when your mouth is closed, this is called an open bite.

Open bites can be caused by thumb sucking or a tongue thrust, and they can make it difficult to eat some kinds of food. An open bite can also lead to difficulty with speaking, creating speech impediments like having a lisp.
