A member asked:

What should the hard palate feel like, when i run my finger down it feels just a tiny higher than the left and right and i cant tell if thats normal or im overreacting?

Overreacting: We are not exactly symmetric. Variation from one side to the other is the norm rather than the exception. However, it is impossible to virtually determine if this is normal variation or pathology. Go see an expert with over 10'000 hours of formal training and years of experience, your Dentist.

NORMAL: YOUR HARD PALATE IS IN THE SHAPE OF AN ARCH JUST LIKE A SPOON OR LADEL. LOOK AT THE FULL DENTURE OF SOMEONE YOU KNOW AND YOU WILL SEE IT IS THE SHAPE OF THEIR PALATE. LOOK IN THE MIRROR OR TAKE A SELFIE OF YOUR PALATE.
