I have the same problem with cheeks jaws. I read research from pops on tensionless playing. His findings are that most professional players don’t strain the muscles in they’re cheeks instead it is focus on the embouchure corners and chin. The cheeks and jaw might move but only as a reflex. A heat diagram shows this clearly.

I think we might be using too much tension where it is not wanted.
