Considering this, is the nose inferior to the forehead?

The nose is superior to the mouth. Inferior: Lower. The nose is on the anterior side of the head.

Furthermore, what is inferior to the nose? The inferior nasal concha (inferior turbinated bone or inferior turbinal/turbinate) is one of the three paired nasal conchae in the nose. It extends horizontally along the lateral wall of the nasal cavity and consists of a lamina of spongy bone, curled upon itself like a scroll, (turbinate meaning inverted cone).

Keeping this in view, are eyes superior to the nose?

The eye is lateral to the nose. The nose is medial to the ears.

Is the mouth superior to the nose?

No. The nose is superior to the mouth. The word inferior refers to something below something else. The stomach, for instance, lies below the diaphragm and so is inferior to it.
