Since teeth are our best clues to what an extinct animal might've eaten, what kinds of prey would those crazy stitches be useful for?

Direct evidence indicates fish, but also perhaps much softer prey.

Teeth in this style are less likely to "spear" prey so much as hold it, due to the lack of recurvature, and how they splay outward. I hypothesized here: qilong.wordpress.com/2014/02/2… about the subject.

A spectacular looking skull!  You should do an Azhdarchid!

Wonderful.  Scientific rendering has a true beauty of its own.

Do its teeth really stick out of its mouth that much?

When the skulls are flattened on the sides or top to bottom, they flare out a lot more on either side. A crushed, but 3D skull, suggests that the teeth will mostly point downward but also out about 30+ degrees and cross each other. So, yes, but not I am estimating the angles somewhat.
