    Default why does she have such a long face?

    'Why does she have such a long face?' Is this sentence correct? If yes, why there is 'she have' in this sentence. Shouldn't it be 'she has'. Please comment.

    Thanking you.

    When you have the auxiliary verb does/doesn't, you use the infinitive form after it, so in questions and negatives, you'll see 'have' not 'has'.
