I live in a palace where it's dark inside
No light in there, unless open wide
Even though I am not a king, sometimes I wear a crown
I am not a queen either, neither I am a clown
I'm known for tearing stuff by moving up and down
Don't take care of me and I might hurt you
Take care of me and get better pictures of you

Can you guess what am I?

I think you are a:

tooth!

I live in a palace where it's dark inside
No light in there, unless open wide

Teeth live in mouths, which fit this description

Even though I am not a king, sometimes I wear a crown
I am not a queen either, neither I am a clown

Teeth are neither kings, queens, nor clowns, but they do sometimes have crowns

I'm known for tearing stuff by moving up and down

This describes chewing food

Don't take care of me and I might hurt you

If you don't brush and floss your teeth, they'll start to hurt!

Take care of me and get better pictures of you

People like to have a dazzling white smile for photos!

Title:

Without teeth, it would be harder to eat, which would definitely make life hard!

    $\begingroup$ This is probably more correct than mine... Mine fits except for the tearing stuff, and this suits that perfectly... $\endgroup$ Apr 19, 2018 at 21:24

    $\begingroup$ You're not missing any connection, that line is the follow up of the one before. $\endgroup$

I think its

The brain

I live in a palace where it's dark inside
No light in there, unless open wide

The skull, a bone palace, is dark inside unless opened up through surgery or injury.

Even though I am not a king, sometimes I wear a crown
I am not a queen either, neither I am a clown

No gender, but the head could wear a crown (also the crown is part of the head)

I'm known for tearing stuff by moving up and down

Concussion? Not sure...

Don't take care of me and I might hurt you
Take care of me and get better pictures of you

Not caring for the head can lead to brain damage, but look after it properly and you'll have a healthier life.

Title:

Without a brain, life would be pretty hard...
