Default color of cat's mouth

I'm probably going to make this sound worse than it is, but does anyone know
if it's normal for the front part (just around the front teeth) of the upper
roof of a cat's mouth to be darker than the rest of the roof, which is more
pinkish?

It is normal. My tuxedo has black lips in the front and on one side. My tabby
has a dark spot on his roof of the mouth.

Yes, the tissue can have darker pigmentation in various areas of their
mouths. There may be darker spots & blotches on the roof of the mouth, on
the lips, wherever. Also on the skin you might sometimes see this - where
the fur may be sparser, like in front of the ears; or they may have dark
splodges on the pads of their otherwise pink paws.

Yes, I agree. My tabby and white has sort of a "speckled" brown and
white roof of his mouth.
