can we differentiate with pictures and explanation between fissured and pathological tongue disease? I am worry and not sure what I have.

Yes and no

Fissured tongue really isnt a disease. It's just a characteristic that some people have. For an example, I've included a photo of fissured tongue. There are differing degrees as well, some more or less pronounced. If there is a concern that you have some sort of pathology, see a dentist for a professional opinion.

What kind of disease/condition causes involuntary tongue protrusion?

Habit or

Tongue
It could be a habit you developed over time. If this is the case, a dentist can make an appliance to try to stop the habit. It could also be a neurological problem so for this I would recommend a neurologist and I would probably start there and rule out the medical end of things. Don't wait too long.
