People with Parkinson's have facial masked without smile.

The facial masked makes the chin tighten and have tighten forehead

They sleep with facial masked therefore the chin tighten and forhead tighten too,

Are they the symptoms of Parkinson's disease?

That's a good question. Facial masking is very common among people with PD, especially as PD progresses. It is not, to my knowledge, a diagnostic factor, as it does not necessarily present in the early stages. But if masking, along with other factors such as balance and tremor are present, it might be considered in diagnosis of PD.
