Thanks for writing to us.

I would like you to that a thin lining covers the roof of our mouth and even a slight amount of trauma from biting on a hard object, burns from hot drinks, smoking or dietary deficiencies can cause sores/ulcer. Usually, it takes 7-10 days for a cut /sore to heal completely.

I would like to know if it is painful and whether you have experienced any changes in its size.

Usually, the color changes are seen as a part of normal healing process, but in order to make sure, I advise you to see a dentist for a thorough dental check-up.

I hope I answered your query,
If you have any follow-up questions for me, kindly post them here.
I wish you good health.
Take care.
