Hello and welcome.

Thanks for sharing your concern.

Can you please mention since when do you have this bone spur in your palate?

As you have mentioned it is non painful neither obstructive in nature then you wait and watch for time being.

It could be a small tori in your palate.which is often harmless.

you can take a x ray and attach it here for further suggestions in this regard.

Take care.
