When you have a clogged nose it’s mainly due to 1 of 2 reasons. The first is you have mucus inside your nostril and you’ll just have to grab a tissue

The second reason is there may be fluid such as pus building up in the sinuses it’s for the most part air filled portion of the skull and that’s under normal circumstances. However, once irritated it could produce fluid in the area causing it to become clogged. You could actually shift which side is more stuffy if you lay your head down on the left side your left nostril tends to be more stuffy after a few minutes this is because gravity is pulling fluid from the right sinus to the left.

Another possibility for the shift is because one nostril may just so happen to have more fluid in that sinus and it can vary the amount of fluid in each one throughout the day.

If you take a flashlight and look at your nose while its healthy vs while you have clogged passages you will notice the path is blocked by what seems to be inflamed tissue
