Is it possible somehow that antimatter (-ve mass) could create an upside curvature on spacetime, as it bulges outward rather than inward as in case of real matter (+ve mass)?

  • $\begingroup$ Why do you think that antimatter has negative mass? $\endgroup$

Antimatter particles have mass and both produce and respond to gravity the same way as their matter counterparts. The "anti" in their name refers not to their mass but to their electrical charge.
