Without x-rays, it's hard to guess. It could be the close location of your wisdom teeth or hyper-keratinized tissue due to constant trauma and irritation.

I’ve had my wisdom teeth taken out already. But I constantly bite down in my cheek and I can feel pressure on that area.

This is what it looks like today.

I think it is the tissue's response to trauma like scarring. Be aware that if you irritate it too much (physical trauma and chemical irritation), there could be a potential for the traumatized area to make abnormal tissue to protect itself and become pre-cancerous.

Ok. Would the area start to look really white and gross or woukdbitbjust get worse than what it looks like? Pictures on Google are hard to compare.

I showed my dentist about this picture , he said White color on extraction site is normal untill Your gum had a rised area with white lesion like fungus over bread . You may never get the pale pinkish color on that extraction site . .

It is normal in his words , untill there is a sudden soreness occurs .

Regarding pain he suggest to visit a dentist

Here is a person after 3 months of 2 wisdom teeth extraction .

No need to worry and do not irritate the area by mean of Touching too much with your fingers , or streching the cheek . This will cause FEELING OF PAIN etc

Sometimes complete healing bone level ( teeth socket) takes year or more .

After extraction various facts or anatomy like capillaries Granalution tissue etc changes occures so Not to worry

Advice , After 6 month of extraction go for a comprehensive dental examination with an OPG xray or IOPAR

Ok. I got them taken out when I was 15 and I'm 26 now. So that's got to be what is going on then. Because there isn't any pain.
