I get cold sores on my lips. What are scars supposed to look like?

I have this like white one that comes and goes right on the top and tip of my lip, where my lip meets skin. It looks like a really really thin and small cold sore, but without the sore, or the pain, or the general discomfort.

I see this even when I dont get cold sores for months! It ebbs and wains. Sometimes I cant see it in the mirror unless I look really close, sometimes I can see it just by glancing in a mirror.

What is this? Is it just a scar? Is there anyway to get rid of it?

I have had a cold sore on the inside of my lip or a canker sore and when the healing process starts the sore is white in the inside and takes forever to fade. Till this day I can still see the scar from where the sore was initially.
