Hard, painless bony bump on top of mouth. A little to the right of midline. Same color as palate. I'm scared and can't see a dentist for week. ?

In brief: Don't panic

Most likely this is a palatal torus as suggested by the other doctors here and is harmless.
Regardless of what it is, you have your appointment with a dentist in a week, nothing will happen with this type of area in that short period of time.

In brief: Could be..

A boney growth called a torus.
If that is what it is, it is nothing to be concerned about. Keep your appointment with the dentist to make sure.

In brief: Palatial torus

This very well could be a palatal torus.
A very common bony development found in the roof of the mouth. However, any bump is worth a look by your dentist.
