I'm working on book class and happen to have a relatively long title, when I write I get this: enter image description here

I would go up a bit the title, but that short titles remain in place

enter image description here

enter image description here but that short titles remain in place, thanks in advance :)

enter image description here

The important thing of the code is here:

\usepackage[total={5.2in,9.73in},top=1in, left=1.2in,includefoot]{geometry}
\RequirePackage{fourier}         % Fuente palatino
   \thechapter}\hsp\textcolor{cyan}{\vrule height 2.7em width 1pt}\hsp}{0pt}{\Huge\bfseries}
 \chapter{Leyes generales de conservación y simetrías}\lipsum[1-4]
 \chapter{Teoría de Hamilton-Jacobi}\lipsum[1-4]
  • Hi, it would be more convenient for helpers if you would provide the important code inside a minimal working example. Makes testing possible solutions much easier.

    You should not allow hyphenation in titles

You can align on the bottom row of the title:

enter image description here


    \thechapter}\hsp\textcolor{blue}{\vrule height 2.7em width 1pt}\hsp}{0pt}{\Huge\bfseries\chptitle}


\chapter{Aaaa bbbb}


\chapter{Aaaa bbbb Aaaa bbbb Aaaa bbbb}
