Subjective finding: This would have to be personally evaluated to determine whether or not it is normal or some issue that requires attention. Have it looked at by your own dentist.

It is normal: The hard palate is always light in color in comparison to the soft palate or the other oral mucosa of the mouth. There is no need to worry, if concerned see your dentist to confirm..
