I wanted to find out why my epiglottis is suddenly visible. Should it be a cause for concern? I am an adult.

In brief: Interesting

I wonder why you have never seen your epiglottis before.
If you open your mouth and depressed the tongue it is easy to see. I'm sure it has been there your whole life and if you have no problems with swallowing, stay cool & relax.
