Hello and welcome to healthcare forum.
After parting either little bit or too much whatever you see is only perianal skin and anal mucosa. Examination of External or internal anal sphincter is a done by palpation and not by inspection.
If you have any problem then dont hesitate and visit a doctor but dont do examination by your self.
Best wishes for your health.
