Not permanent: By all means keep your belly button clean. In folding it will not be permanent. The hygiene factor will be appreciated. Great job.

Umbilical hernia: What you are describing is an umbilical hernia. If small and w/o symptoms, these may be rx'd conservatively. Otherwise, simple outpatient surgery can fix the problem. I recommend that you see a hernia surgeon.

Probably normal: If you are a thin or normal weight person, this is perfectly normal. If you are overweight, it may still be normal, but you should discuss with your doctor and have your blood pressure checked.
