Tooth Pulled - hole in gum

I had a tooth pulled next to where my widom tooth was.  The exraction went fine.  I have a hole in the gum which feels like a skin flap.  Food keeps getting caught in the hole.  Is this normal?  Will the hole fill-in?

It's normal. The hole will be fiiled as time goes by.
