Dip in tongue

Along the middle of my tongue there is a dip that's about 1/4 cm deep, is this normal?

Re: Dip in tongue

Does it look like a crack or is it just a smooth dip?

If it's a crack, then it would be called a "geographic tongue" and lots of people have them. Google should have pictures under the images tab.

If it's just a dip going along the length of the tongue, then that's just the form of your tongue and it doesn't sound like anything unusual.
