Yes, that is definitely an upper lip tie. Probably a class III but possibly a IV. Most upper lip ties usually go hand in hand with a posterior tongue tie and most doctors miss them because they don't know how to look for them. Here is a link for a support group on both.

They can cause other problems not related to breastfeeding later down the road like tooth decay and speech problems. That support group has a lot of great information.
