Brief Answer:
Mucosal tags.

Detailed Answer:

Hi again,

Thanks for the picture.

It is absolutely normal. There is nothing to be worried about.
I think you should ignore it if there are no symptoms of any pain or irritation or any change in color or appearance.

I hope my advice proves helpful.

Take care.
