His face isn't symmetrical. One side is larger than the other. This is actually fairly common. In Lincoln's case, it could be due to something like Bell's Palsy, because it looks like it got more obvious as he got older. People with Bell's Palsy have "droop" on one side of their face.

Also, it took a long time to expose a photo back then, and you had to sit still for a while; Lincoln may not have had his eyes focused on anything.
