End of styloid poking out of tonsil

Question for you all: If the end of styloid is poking out of tonsil, which I am sure this is the case for me, where is the attachment of the ligaments etc. Aren’t they supposed to be attached to the end of the thing? DO they somehow become detached because of the growth of the styloid process? Thanks

As far as I’m aware they’re attached further up, not right at the tip. So if the tip keeps growing, then it wouldn’t necessarily affect the ligament.

Thank you Jules! Makes sense now!
