This is common. The collar is too high. If your shoulders are more squared than sloping this will often happen. I believe it used to be properly fixed by removing the collar, cutting away excess material and reattaching it. I've also noticed that if a jacket is too snug, or oddly, too loose, these folds can tend to appear.

If you really want to avoid this problem then you need to go bespoke. Your tailor will crooken the balance of the coat with the neck point being placed a little more backwards on your pattern. You most like have a very erect stance.

The chances are there are other balance related issues with any RTW coat you try on too.
Not to be disputatious, but a decent MTM program shouldn't have a problem dealing with it either. I've had a similar issue most of my life with most RTW patterns, and MTM I've used typically were accustomed to this modification as it's common. In my youth, a decent retail tailor wasn't too bothered by the alteration either, but I fear the general level of skill is now much lower.
