[Comments] (5) On Retainer(s): My top retainer mold has a negative cast of my palate that looks a lot like a Klingon's forehead. I've been carrying a Klingon forehead in my mouth all my life without knowing it. Now I wonder if the Trek actors who play Klingons are acting with big molds of their palates or someone's palates on their foreheads. Probably not practical.

My dentist told me that the bump on the roof of my mouth is not normal, although it won't pose a problem unless I need dentures. I wonder what a cast of my palate looks like. I didn't know people weren't supposed to have bumps there.

I see Klingon-like bumps in this picture, which is allegedly of a normal palate. Do you have one big bump?

me too. I also have a thin crack nearly straight along the line that goes down the middle, but sort of to the side. For a while i would constantly turn my tongue counterclockwise to feel it.
