There is a piece of skin kind of hanging after tongue piercings

I just got my tongue pierced 4 days ago and on the top of iit where the hole is there is a piece of skin kind of hanging that looks like my tongue has ripped because it looks like it is going to cover my tongue ring up. Is that normal? If not what should I do?

Thanks for query,
It seems that part of thick mucous membrane is coming out,I think gradually it will be alright.
Do gargling so that food particles are not longed in the hole.
If chances of infection is there,take antibiotic course.
ok and bye.
