I have never heard this expression. At least to me, it could have several meanings.

Perhaps the adult had large cheeks.
"Cheeky" is something like "cara de pau". Perhaps the adult appeared to be the "cara de pau" type.

Hi Thomas, thanks a lot for replying my question. To facilitate this is the text, is a small joke, maybe you can help me better. Sorry my mistakes, I'm a beginner in English language and you can correct me.

"Little Tim was in the garden filling in a hole when his neighbor
peered over the fence. Interested in what the cheeky-faced
youngster was up to, he politely asked:

What are you up to there, Tim?

My goldfish died, replied Tim tearfully, without looking
up, and I've just buried him.

The neighbor was concerned:

That's an awfully big hole for a goldfish, isn't it?

Tim patted down the last heap of earth then replied:

That's because he's inside your cat."

I would say "large cheeks". Think "fofinho".
