In mild cases, the condition is self-resolving and no treatment except strict monitoring is necessary. However, in cases of severe airway blockage, mechanical intubation may be required. In life-threatening airway blockage, surgical intervention is necessary. The cleft palate is treated conservatively or by surgical intervention depending on the extent of the cleft.

I would do it. Go to a dr specializing in this. Both my sons had theirs repaired and it worked wonderful! A doctor that does this all the time can tell you if there is a good possibility of it working.
