Is the idea that an angel touches the upper lip of a baby a Jewish one?

This has been something said in my family and I know that it is a Jewish thing but I’m wondering if it’s sort of exclusively a Jewish thing or if gentiles tell their children this as well

A description from an article just in case I didn’t word it too well: “The philtrum—that groove we all have above our upper lips—may not be a commonly-referenced body part, but in Jewish mystical tradition, it’s quite significant. And it’s said to be the result of a tap from Lailah, the angel of conception, administered the moment a baby is born.”

Edit: Just a reminder that my question is whether this idea exists among gentiles as well
