Brief Answer:
Seem like a cyst may be under the skin in that area.

Detailed Answer:

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

It seems like you may have a small cyst under the skin in that area because it has not only formed a wrinkle but also it is more swollen then the other side.

My suggestion is that you try for 1 week or so to do a massage with a cream or face skin oil in that are, twice/day for 10 min.
If not better, then I would recommend that a local dermatologist has a look at it so that he/she examines the area and if he feels the cyst than it can be removed very easily.

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