Tori: I'm not sure what your question is, but i will try to help. The slow growing bone growth under your tongue (and also sometimes in the middle of the palate) is call a "tori". It is a very slow benign growth of bone. Nothing to worry about, but if you have any questions see your dentist or oral surgeon to confirm this is true in your case.
