I recently noticed that the roof of my mouth (hard part) is sort of whitish, and so is the skin on the gums above my rear molars. I have never really looked up there before with any good light so I am not sure how long it was like that or it is just normal. It does not hurt and I have no sores up there or anything like that, just the colour bothers me. Should I worry about it or is this normal.

  • I've the exact same thing! Roof of the mouth is slightly white. BTW the redness on either side of your soft palate near your molars is normal.
