As my colleagues suggested, this is called as linea alba buccalis, which is not an abnormality. U can ignore it.

The raised line at that level is common as it is junction where upper and lower jaw comes in contact when we close the mouth.And if painless no need to worry. BUT IT IS ADVISABLE TO CONSULT YOUR DENTIST.
