If it is working fine I would not sweat it. Every laptop has it's own cooling solutions, and in some of them the radiator or a heatsink are located next to the palm rest.

likely heat coming off the lamp at the bottom. Hot air ascends through whatever channel finds on that side of the screen and gets in contact with the plastic cover at that location. Don't worry, it won't melt or anything. If it were to melt, it would start from the immediate vicinity of the lamp.

It's fine. Laptops get much, much hotter than desktops and they're designed to withstand it. My laptop gets incredibly hot when playing games - palm rest, keyboard, the metal trim especially. I don't usually monitor my temperatures, but when it gets pushed, it can get within 1C of its max operating temperature (100C, higher than its desktop counterparts).

Edit: I should add, airflow is another factor. Mine intakes from the bottom and exhausts out the left side, which causes my palm rest to get even hotter.
