Thank you, ***** ***** like a small blood blister/bruise, it doesn't appear concerning, it could have been from your molars either grinding or biting, during eating or more likely in your sleep.

I suspect this will resolve over 1-2 weeks.

There is no pain whatsoever, should i be concerned still?

No, it doesn't need to be, it could have been very superficial damage.
