Sometimes after I wake up, my lower jaw can't move forward?

After I wake up, many times I have this same old problem. I try to move my lower jaw forward, but I can't. I can open my mouth wide, but I can't my jaw forward. Basically slowly I keep attempting to move my lower jaw forward until finally it breaks through with a clicking noise.

Additionally often times afterwards my right ear has a little trouble hearing.

And yes, I do have a severe overbite. I am a senior in high school and plan on getting overbite surgery one of these days.

Should I really worry about these experiences when I wake up from a nap/in the morning, or is it just the nature of the beast in having an overbite and something I'll just have to deal with until I get my overbite corrected?

Your symptomatology suggests disc displacement or anchored disc phenomenen. Seeing a tmj specialist is advised.
