I'm sorry but that photo isn't clear enough. Can you take another one or ask someone to help you take it? Make sure you use the flash on the camera.
Yes, this photo is a lot better, thanks.
This appears to be an Epulis Fissuratum, a fibrous growth caused due to the constant impingement of the denture border on the mucosa. I suggest you not wear the denture till this is treated, as more contact with the denture border will result in more irritation.
Please see a dentist, you will need a steroid/amesthetic ointment to be applied there and the ulcer to heal. The denture may have to be relined later.
Dont worry, it is nothing serious.
