Day 4 (night) healing from molar extraction

I’m on day four after having one of my top molars taken out (upper right 7) and I can only just about see the clot. It seems to have retracted quite a bit and looks a bit empty. However the clot seems to still be there, just further inside the hole. Is this normal healing? Almost everything I read says that it shouldn’t look like a dark hole and if it does then it’s a dry socket, but I don’t have any pain, so it shouldn’t be.

If you are not in pain, then most likely it is not a dry socket. On the photo everything still appears normal. Give it more time. This wound should heal nicely enough on its own, without any intervention
