Brief Answer:
Just a normal pocket/fold of the tonsil.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thank you for using Healthcaremagic to post your health query.
I read carefully your question and I saw your photo.

The small cut you have notices is just a normal pocket of the tonsil. I don't notice nothing to worry about there. Our bodies are not totally symmetric in both sides.

Hope this is helpful.
Let me know if you have other questions or concerns.

Regards,
Dr. Papaqako
