This looks like some sort of ulcer? Did you perhaps injure yourself? How long has this lesion been present? Do you smoke?

The small hole you're pointing to could be several things, including:
  1. A cold sore: These are small, fluid-filled blisters that can develop on the lips or around the mouth. They are caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV-1).
  2. A mucocele: These are small, painless, fluid-filled bumps that can develop on the lips or inside the mouth. They are caused by a buildup of mucus under the skin.
  3. A Fordyce spot: These are small, white, painless bumps that can develop on the lips, cheeks, or gums. They are caused by sebaceous glands, which are the same glands that produce oil on the skin.
Visit a dentist and get it checked ASAP.
