Snoring can be resultant of a lot of structural and/or functional problems in your airway. Hence is always advisable to go for a detailed check-up either in person or via teleconsultation (if former isn't convinient). Snoring amongst us is taking very lightly and only considered a problem as disturbs the sleep of near and dear ones. But actually snoring can also be life threatening if associated with hypoxia (i.e. lack of oxygenation of the brain during sleep). Bappi Lahiri recently died of complications of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Snoring can be a sign of underlying OSA and hence requires immediate attention. Clips and nasal wearables available for snoring are a scam and should be avoided. Please consult an ENT doctor in person or via teleconsultation at the earliest.

Snoring requires proper screening, so as to know at what level the problem is. We need to know your BMI, neck girth,we need to see locally for presence of bulky tongue,to rule out deviated nasal septum etc. So pls consult in person for more details
