I will try to go to a dentist and see. I see a white small patch tiny under tongue and it hurts not sure if it is a bite or a cranker sore. I have sharp edge on the teeth which touches it. I am worried if it is cancerous or something.

I had an appointment with the Dentist. And you are 100% right, as per dentist there is no issues and the white line on the cheeks are cheek bites and also the tongue could be a bite and she took pictures and validated.
