The mentalis muscle is a muscle located at the center of the chin just below the lips. It is used for facial expression, where it makes a pouting look by raising the lower lip. It originates at the front center of the jaw bone and inserts into the skin of the chin.

The mentalis is innervated by the marginal mandibular nerve.
