During pregnancy they can vary. Some women have fain red lines that are slightly raised and bumpy. Others have flesh colored lines that are flat and squiggle. It depends on the person, the skin type, and how much stretch the belly needs. Mine at the moment are a pale dark purple with texture, but not raised. They were that way when I was pregnant too. Although some were flesh colored depending on the area.
