Why is my hard palate big like a knot ?

Ok so my hard palate is a hard knot looking thing. It has always been like this and I thought it was normal but when looking at my familly's theirs are smooth where mine is a big lump. It feels like a bone. It has never bothered me but Im wondering why its so big.


This is very common. You have what is called a bony torris (Pronounced tor-eye). It's a condition where bone fragments simply overgrow when the palate is forming. Check under your tongue to see if you have it there too, most of the time when someone has it on the palate it's also under the tongue.

It's nothing to be alarmed about, just something unique about you :]
