My first name is Lacto and last name Mah.

My Gmail is lacto.mah@gmail.com.

But why does Google keep showing me: lactomah@gmail.com?

It shows me that one when I have logged in into gmail.com/google.com. Is it a way to change it back to lacto.mah@gmail.com?

Btw its not a good idea to publicly post your email address. (unless that's not really your email address). –  Nano8Blazex Oct 7 '10 at 4:21

I'm pretty sure that Google accounts ignores all periods (it's a "feature"). In other words, you can put a period anywhere in your name, and use it for an email address. P.S. here's some more interesting info about it: http://labnol.blogspot.com/2006/09/gmail-easter-eggs-dot-blindess-email.html
