High notes are always scary but there are a lot of things that could be causing it. I recommend getting a private teacher if you don't already have one. My teacher taught me an exercise to help with my embouchure. It's called the "Freeze tag" exercise. Pick a note, any note you want. Now without using you tongue or your fingers, jump up an octave. Go up each note. I know it sounds pointless, but it really helps
