It seems some of my older rabbits have bigger and rounder heads.

Yes. Their heads can continue to fill out as they age; you can really see this well in the bulldog headed breeds, like holland lops, where their heads don't reach their full show potential until later in their life (when I did hollands, it was about 2+ years before their head stopped growing significantly )
I have shown: bruns, hares, petites, dutch, spots, Flemish, harlequin, Havana, Himalayan, Hollands, jersey wooly, mini lop, mini rex, dwarfs, NZW, polish, standard chins, tan, vlops; American & coronet cavies

bucks also get very pronounced jowls as they mature as well - sometimes it makes their eyes look squinty.
