Some of the 'holes' are supposed to be there. That's where the saliva comes into your mouth. You can call the dentist for your own peace of mind.

that is most likely a cleft palate. It is completely may get bigger with a clear nasal passage. But no treatment is necessary. Also with this small hole you will actually speak better at late ages. and if u can't breathe through mouth you may be able to breathe most of the time through your nose.
