We understand the concerns that you feel. Some parents, if they find abnormalities in the baby's mouth, certainly feel restless.
Disturbances in the roof of the mouth or upper jaw should be examined further to rule out a disease called palatoschisis or cleft palate. In layman's language, the condition leads to a cleft lip disorder.
Palatoschisis is a congenital abnormality from birth, which causes the baby to have a gap or hole in the upper lip and palate. Cleft lip can occur on only part of the upper lip, part of the palate, or both. The size of the gap also varies, ranging from small to be able to form a large gap and connect the palate of the mouth to the upper lip directly.
To find out for sure, we recommend that you carry out an examination of the condition of your baby to the nearest doctor or pediatrician. The doctor will evaluate the presence of holes in the palate and identify whether the abnormality leads to an abnormality of the cleft lip or not.
You do not need to worry, as long as the baby is not fussy, can consume milk properly and its growth and development according to its age.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
