I just saw the picture.
It appears to be a piece of iris (colored part of eye) over-riding the edge.
yes, upon closer inspection -the iris overlaps in a triangular piece
I don't believe it has a specific name. The closest thing would be something called "PPM" or persistent pupillary membrane.
during development, the hole in the iris is covered and needs to form.
In some people, the development of the round pupil is not complete and may leave behind some irregularities.
It is generally of no significance.
You should have regular eye exam to ensure there are no changes to it.
Interesting. I figured there was no significance, but wondered more about it. Kinda fascinating
