Well, that all depends on your defense method. In the standard defense, no, you simply have your chin down a bit. Your shoulder is not involved.
There are, of course, defense styles that do involve the shoulder, and specifically, putting the chin behind the shoulder. However, for a beginner such as yourself, I wouldn't worry about complicated styles just yet. Refer to my other post for a pretty deep explanation on where it should be positioned.
