Q. How can I help my aloe plant? It seems top heavy.


There are a number of aloe plant varieties that grow to approximately a foot or more tall and then topple over and continue to grow down the side of the pot. A. brevifolia an aloe species that looks like yours that has this habit. 

If your plant is getting the bright light that it needs and does not show any other signs of distress, there is a good chance that what you are seeing is its natural growing habit.
