In brief: Linea alba?
A raised white line inside your mouth at the level where your teeth meet is due to sucking or biting your cheeks.
Its called a linea alba (white line). Benign tumors appear as bumps inside your mouth that may hurt if you accidentally bite them. See your doctor, your dentist, an ear, nose & throat specialist (ENT) or an oral surgeon. Remember a picture is worth 1000 words.
