i was advised to try a 'chin' strap from the top loops to stop the bit twisting - won't this just rub on the noseband?

No it doesn't look too low to me. What is the link on the mouthpiece? Perhaps try changing from a single joint mouthpiece to a french link if you're worried about it?

As far as I know it should just cause a few wrinkles at each corner, which it looks to be - not sure if this is different for different bits though. I thought a chinstrap would just give it an almost curb action..?

I wear my dutch gag about this height, as when you use the action the bit comes slightly higher anyway if that makes sense)!

TBH emmie, you can't really see whether it's too low or not as the noseband is holding it in place

If you are really worried, take another pic with bottom strap of noseband removed

i cant really see in the photo how many wrinkles there are in the corner of the mouth...as it isnt detailed enough...but it looks about the right height in his mouth.

i was always told it should have 1 or 2 small wrinkles in the corner of the mouth.
