 Re: Embouchure and articulation

Generally when I've encountered this students at first say 'no' their tongue is not touching the lip but further investigation reveals that this is indeed what is happening. They are so used to the sensation that it is difficult at first for them to detect it for what it is by touch. Air alone is not going to cause the lip to move under normal clarinet conditions, so SOMETHING must be pushing against the lip to create a visible change. The list of possible suspects is extremely short.

If you were to post a video of you tonguing over the range of the instrument, perhaps both with a close up of the area of the lip that is moving and a wider shot of the lower half of your face we might be able to tell more. The sound that you are producing while this happening may also reveal something.

The real solution is a lesson or two with a qualified specialist. There's nothing wrong with taking a lesson or very short series of lessons to address a specific problem. Yes, regular lessons will produce far more benefit, but the kind of teacher you need should be able to help you get this sorted rather quickly as long as you are willing to practice what they assign to help you make the change to your habits. Then again, if you don't see/hear an actual problem you might as well wait until there is one.
