Anatomy: There are many normal irregularities on the surface mucosal tissues covering the boney hard palate. For example, Google rugae. But abnormal lesions ae possible. When you go for your regular Dental appointments does your Dentist mention anything out of the ordinary? Without being able to see, touch, x-ray your palate, best suggestion is see Thor Dentist for an evaluation.
