Inside of throat


Original Poster
Okay so this may be a really stupid question, but every little thing worries me so I wanna make sure this isn’t a cause for concern. My beardie was on his basking rock, gaping after eating. I noticed inside his throat there is black lines. They’re small, thin black lines and what isn’t black lines is pink. I’m not sure if this is normal, i’ve never owned a bearded dragon before this & ive also never really payed close attention to the back of his throat so i’m not sure if it’s been like this. (i’ve had him for about a month now.) Is this normal? Or should I be concerned?
Edit: I just went to try and get a picture, but i’m unable to as it’s further back in his throat. What is surrounded by the “holes” between the black lines is white. It looks almost just like a pattern & not random lines in random places throughout his throat? This is the best way I know to describe it. Also, while trying to get these pictures I noticed red bumps at the end of his teeth on his gums. I attached a picture of that.

I agree, the inside of his mouth appears normal. They all have some different markings,
etc on the mouth, roof of their mouths because they are individuals but it didn't look to
have any health issues.

Can beardies eat Mustard Greens? Hope so I bought some along with some Cilantro. Needed to try something different. He won't eat his broccoli or cauliflower he used it eat it. So I thought I'd give it a try.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
