Can a comb block their nose?

Alright, here is my most recent stupid quesion. I was looking at the pics I took of my sweeties today and realized my rooster, Sigmund, has his nostrils covered by his comb. Well, I say rooster, he is a 5 month old cockerel. Soooo......I am assuming his comb will continue to grow? Is it possible it could cause him trouble breathing in the future? Here is a pic of what we have now.....I know some get HUGE combs, but is his too low on his nose or is this normal?

Hope so.....I think I worry as much about them as I did my children when they were babies. I guess they know how to be chickens, I just don't.

Oh, WILL his comb get much larger or, I guess, when do they generally stop growing?
