Had some slight burning pain in this area two weeks ago. thought it was because i injured it while eating chips. Noticed this hole there, it's been two weeks and the hole is still there? I've included a circled pic for identification.

anyone know what this is?

Usually most injury in the mouth heal after 2 weeks. I think your injury has improved/healed and what is left is still healing or developing a scar (granulation tissue).

doc is it normal for injuries in this area to have scar tissue form? theres a slight lump in that area now. when i press down on it, it kinda feels like how a scar would feel on one's skin. i kept picking at it when it was healing and actually created a slightly bigger 'wound'. so it had to heal again and now the 'scar' or whatever you wanna call it is also slightly bigger than before.
