Sometimes food or your toothbrush can scrap the tender tissue stretching over the tori causing pain. Rinse with warm salt water. You need to see a dentist to make sure you do not have a palatal abcess due to an infected tooth or less likely oral cancer.

Why does my hard palate get cut and swell every time I have toasted bagel?

It depends.: If you are putting cream cheese on it, you might be allergic. If it is really hot when you are biting into it, you are burning your hard palate. If you are waiting a few minutes and the bagel is really hard, it might be so hard that it is cutting your palate. If it is repeatedly occurring it is pretty strange and unusual.
