I woke up this morning with this dried up blood in between my upper front teeth and blood comes out when I touch it. It does not hurt, and when I brush my teeth, I can see it move. I have not noticed any changes in my gums or teeth. My gums usually bleed when the bristles of my toothbrush scrape against them. I am going to make an appointment with a dentist. But, I am a little freaked out about this as I am only 20. When I ate something earlier, it inflated a little bit, popped and bled without any pain.
