mine has got the gums but then on either side little ridges just inside of them towards front of mouth

hard to explain

like an interior row of buds?

The buds are the baby teeth.

Oh, not getting what you mean then. Sorry.

Yes they are the baby teeth just below the surface, totally normal.

Btw the soft palate is the roof of the mouth towards the throat, I assume this isn't the area you are talking about?
