Didn't Harry hold the snitch in his hand the first time when he was trained by Oliver in 'Sorcerer's

Stone'? In
'Deathly Hallows-1', why does it open when he touches it to lips, when swallowing during the game wasn't the first
time he touched it?
The snitch have flesh memories, it means that they remember the First ever touch. That is the reason that even the snitch makers
wear gloves while making them. Not even the instructor or anyone else is allowed to touch the snitch with it's bare hands.

The snitch that Dumbledore left for Harry in his will was another snitch from the one used while Oliver was training Harry in
Sorcerer's stone. Maybe during practice they use an old backup snitch and new snitches for matches. We don't exactly know but it is
sure that both the snitches are different.

The snitch (that Dumbledore left for Harry) was first ever used in the match against Slytherin in which Harry cought it in his mouth.
It is mentioned in the Deathly Hallows book. That is the first ever touch that the snitch felt and would be able to recognise this touch
in later stages.

So both the snitches were different and the first ever touch felt by the snitch in which resurrection stone was kept was when Harry
cought it with his mouth because it was the first ever match in which it was used after being made.

How did Voldemort know that Harry had the Philosopher's Stone in his pocket?

At the sixth book, Harry learns of the art called Legilimency, the art of navigating through a person’s mind and interpreting it. Or as
muggles tend to call it, mind reading. Harry was to be taught the opposite of Legilimency, Occlumency to protect his mind from
Voldemort, which by this point has a magical connection with Harry. Here’s Severus explaining to Harry the nature of the
connection he has to the dark lord, before attempting (and failing) to teach Occlumency to Harry -

Severus Snape: "It appears there is a connection between the Dark Lord's mind and your own. Whether or not he is aware of this
connection is for the moment unclear. Pray he remains ignorant."

Harry Potter: "You mean if he knows about it, then he'll be able to read my mind?"

Severus Snape: "Read it, control it, unhinge it. In the past it was often the Dark Lord's pleasure to invade the minds of his victims,
creating visions designed to torture them into madness. Only after extracting the last exquisite ounce of agony, only when he had
them literally begging for death would he finally... kill them."

While Voldemort being a master of Legilimency already enough to invade the mind of the 12 year old Harry, we must also remember
that Harry, like his father and most other Gryffindors, is a very emotional person, who wasn’t able to learn Occlumency from one of
the best practitioners of the art (Severus Snape).

Therefore, we can assume that in the first book, even though Voldemort is in a weakened state, he was able to easily use Legilimency
on the chosen one to learn the location of the stone created by Nicholas Flamel.

How was Harry Potter able to burn Professor Quirrell's body with his hands, in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's
(Philosopher's) Stone?

I'd like to clear a small misconception made by a lot of people who after watching this movie, assume that Harry was able to burn
Quirrell's body because he possessed the Philosopher's Stone, which somehow gave him hands of fire. No.

At that point of time in the Harry Potter universe, Lord Voldemort was still a shadow of his own self, surviving by possessing Quirrell
and drinking Unicorn's blood. When Voldemort tried to kill Harry on Hallowe'en 1980, Lily Potter protected Harry. This invoken an
ancient magic, the magic of love. Lord Voldemort - who had never known love - had ripped his soul with the evilest form of magic
known to mankind and when he tried to murder an innocent (Harry), Lily Potter's sacrifice caused him to lose his powers and his
mortal body.

Fast forward to 1991. Harry would still be protected by Lily's magic if : 1. He was underage, i.e under 17 years of age; and 2. As long
as he still had a home with the Dursley's. Since both categories were checked, Lily's magic was still strong. This prevented Lord
Voldemort (who possessed Quirrell) from touching Harry. So when Quirrell tried to touch Harry, there was a kind of reaction which
caused Quirrell's mortal body to burn away.

This prompted Lord Voldemort to regenerate using Harry's own blood at the end of HP & the Goblet Of Fire, which he thought
would negate the power of Lily's magic. What he didn't understand that it would also double it, which lead to his eventual downfall.
