In brief: Black/green tongue

is a temporary, harmless oral condition that gives your tongue a dark appearance.
Typically it doesn't cause any health problems and is usually painless. However, if concerned, see your dentist for consultation. Take care.

In brief: Tongues

Cracks on the tongue are quite common and usually normal anatomy.
Many things can stain the tongue. This might be related to smoking, medications, vitamin supplements, inadequate oral hygiene just to mention a few possibilities. See your own dentist for a proper evaluation and recommendations.

Keep brushing your mouth and tongue.
