Factors such as the size of the rifle scope particularly the objective bell and eyepiece , mounting profile, mounting ring heights, eye relief, and more can all contribute to whether or not you can attain a good cheek weld.
Additional factors such as your face shape, clothing, shooting position, and even trigger control can affect your precision and cheek weld. The consequences can be the intimate black kiss from the scope — poor positioning can have you too close to the scope that in turn causes a black eye or bruising to the face because of recoil. Your face can slip off the stock causing inaccuracy or to learn the lesson more painfully, the stock will smack you in the face. Your properly mounted optic can aid in an ideal positioned cheek weld. Get a cheek rest or extra cheek padding if your scope is mounted with high rings.
You can modify a make-shift cheek rest if you had to. With adhesive felt or moleskin, self-adhering bandages, and foam padding, you could rig your own rest together.

But to be clear, you can still reduce neck fatigue and prevent slippage due to sweating even with a modified cheek rest that is always better than a poor cheek weld. Another way for you to explore with eliminating parallax is to actually back away from the scope.
Increase your eye relief until you can see a consistent amount of the eyepiece around the entire sight picture. This might help you get that good cheek weld and your eye on center. Instead, always bring the rifle up to your cheek to provide a consistent cheek weld, improve accuracy, eliminate parallax, and avoid as much neck fatigue as possible.
This is the point where I welcome you to the much-debated and ongoing for-or-against discussion. But, each time you increase magnification you also increase parallax which means an increased margin of error. Obviously, this can be an issue for long range and extreme long range hunters with high-powered scopes. The key to getting good picture quality without reducing your magnification setting is to use a scope with an AO or side focus.
You want to be able to adjust for parallax if you desire greater and more accurate aiming precision. As a quick word on the topic, the optimum kill zone for a one-shot kill-shot chance on a deer is only about a hand-width size just above the heart. So, you may ask if parallax adjustment is really necessary for most deer, elk, mountain goat, and other big game predator hunting?
Remember at long and extreme distances, you also need to take into consideration other factors such as bullet drop, wind speed and direction, bullet velocity and the like. That in itself can directly cause deviating and large bullet placement results — even without parallax getting involved. At these distances where these factors matter, parallax should be just as important.

Benefits of Parallax Adjustment: Provides more accurate, well-placed, and extremely precise shots Can allow for maximum potential one-shot kills Can change the parallax setting for most distances Makes the scope more versatile for all hunting conditions and distances Can remove almost all parallax Can work in tandem with other accuracy-affecting factors like wind and bullet drop to increase preciseness Reduces the need to perfect cheek weld when in a hurry or if the eye is in a less than ideal alignment with the scope.
All the sizzling, new, and added features of a rifle scope are formulated to help make the best, smoothest, most precise, clear, and user-friendly visionary experience possible — parallax adjustment included. In the end, weighing up the decision to get it or not comes down to: giving yourself the green light and squeezing it into the budget or looking for more affordable or skill-earned ways to get by without it. For you serious plinkers out there, go for it.
This Simmons 8-Point X40 review is an example of an affordable scope that has no adjustable parallax settings. I did promise a twaddle-free report for you, but if you still got lost in the sea of rifle scope gibberish, no problems!
