White and black patch on palate,soft than the mouth roof

I just noticed that my 16-month-old daughter has a big white patch with a littler black patch on the edge of the white on her hard palate . I ve never noticed this before, but I guess I ve never really looked before either. I felt it and it is softer than the roof of the mouth should be. Any suggestions as to what it could be? Thank you in advance!

hi, welcome to Health Care magic Forum,
Need not worry. It is very much normal for this age group babies to have such patch. It usually subsides without treatment but if you are really concerned can get an opinion from a dermatologist. No emergency though. Take care
