I had my wisdom teeth out 6 days ago and just recently I have noticed my gum has come up onto the side my right far back molar. I can peel it back and it is not in place. Is this normal and will it go away or should I talk to my dentist?

Looks like chunky skin after a flap was raised. It should gradually shrink. Just keep it clean with light t'brushing so it doesn't get inflamed.

That's within expectations. Just keep as clean as you reasonably can. The sensitivity usually comes from the tooth in front of the extraction because the gum has temporarily lifted away.
