Interesting question, I can see why one might wonder this, since a cleft chin may be though of as 'masculine'. I'm a mixed martial artist, and thinking about the anatomy of the cleft chin would tell me the answer is 'no'. The cleft is due to an incomplete formation of fusing the jawbone together, therefore, fighting someone with a cleft chin may even be something to exploit with a nice right hook.

The dimpled chin of Kirk Douglas is world-renowned. Your dimpled chin has more of a cleft than a simple dimple.

There is no precise medical term. It may be called a cleft chin, chin cleft or dimpled chin. It is usually called a ''butt chin'', or a left clift

None. A dimpled chin is the result of a dip or cleft in the bone of the jaw. It's a genetically inherited trait that can't be developed by exercise.

cleft chin is recessive, no cleft chin dominant.

That would be a "cleft". The terms cleft chin, butt chin, chin cleft,, superhero chin, dimple chin, or a chin dimple refer to a dimple on the chin
