I had some teeth cut out on the 17th. Yesterday some stitches came out(dissolvable) and now it looks like this. It’s my lower right molar. I’ve been dealing with dry sockets where wisdom teeth were. My oral surgeon said this is all normal but maybe I can other’s opinions?

All normal. Dry sockets occur 3-4 days post-op. After teeth are removed, the bony walls rarely allow the skin to be fully closed even with sutures. However, over several weeks the bone and gum reshpaes (remodels) and close up. It wouldn't be harmful if some food got in this hole occasionally; it will simply work its way out.
