A gap is formed in market profile when price moves rapidly with not a lot of volume
typically gaps in market profile, will provide little or no resistance
when the price travels back to the other direction

Exist the gap that is the closing price of the previous session. Why this price is important?, because 95% are watching it and when the market touches it, it has a reaction. Why is a gap created? generally what is traded at overnight should not interfere in our volume in the RTH, it is at 9:30 a.m. where the action occurs and it is in the regular hour where those who will make the market move participate. The gap closes once the market has touched it during the RTH
