Looks like a nice clot. If it occurs, a dry socket will develop 3-4 days after the extraction, then it will turn to mush. Leave it alone and wait and see.

So, it's well past problem stage. All up, it'll take about 3 months for the hole to fill up. It won't matter if you get food in it, apart from being annoying.
