When your cham sticks it tongue out at first it look blue because all the veins in tongue are gathered up in one place does it look like that?

Wait if it's holding it out like that all the time it's not good. It looks like it's about to shoot at food.

Your cham appears to be female.

Not sure why 2 threads.

Ok thank you I just got concerned because its been like that for two days. Somebody said I should definitely take it to the vets. Do you still think I should?
No, not normal! See a vet! Swelling from infections or mouth-rot frequently present this way.
