It is natural. It's lines that come with" Rolls " folding over if you want to call it that, but necessarily means that you are fat. May be try to work on your posture. Sit up strighter and they will go away.
If the red line is below the belly button, it would get cut out with a tummy tuck, since it is on the portion of skin which is removed.
If the fold is above the belly button, a tummy tuck will tighten the skin and will likely improve the appreance of the fold by pulling it flat.
