Where is possession indicated in this sentence? I only see "a computer, the professor is blue."

Is the non-written part indicating possession?

the indefinite noun "computer" followed by the definite noun "the professor" is a construction called an iDaafa, which is what indicates possession. an iDaafa is basically "X al-Y", meaning "the Y's X" or "the X of Y"
