Looks like a keystone arch, which supports itself. Making that wider means destroying the current arch and rebuilding.

What is above and what is below?


I’m a person that a great many times will advocate DIY approach to a structural problem. This is in my opinion not a case for it to be done DIY.


Find a pro that is a structural engineer and have it evaluated and an action plan made.


Also welcome to the forum.
