Hi I had my wisdom tooth removed 3 days ago and I'm just a bit worried about it healing correctly - in particular if I might have dry socket?

I'm not experiencing severe pain, which I've read is a symptom, but a bit concerned about how it looks.

Would really appreciate any advice, thanks.

It looks fine, if you have dry socket you will most certainly know about it before anyone else does :)
3 days gets you out of dry socket danger too.
