Are molars tipping necessarily a bad thing ?

Pretty vague question. Excessive tipping of the teeth, possibly caused by a dysfunctional swallowing pattern, can contribute to dental crowding. Also if the teeth tip too far it can make them very susceptible to periodontal problems. I do however understand that in orthodontics slight tipping might be necessary to help achieve a better bite between the upper and lower jaw.
What makes you ask this?

I'm wearing a toothborne palate expander rn.
I'm afraid it will tip my teeth too far out and put them in a weak position

Yeah thats definitely a possibility. Regularly see an ortho who can oversee your treatment so they can tell you if the teeth are tipping too much. As i said earlier bone borne expansion like marpe is the most reliable method for post adolescents
 
Not really as your bottom teeth normally tip to widen with your palate
