Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Brief Answer:
looks benign

It looks like a benign cyst but it would be a good idea to have your dentist or doctor take a look at it in person. If they have any doubt then they could do a biopsy to make sure it is nothing to worry about.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
