This means that the derivative does not exist when x=b, but clearly the function is continuos, because if you were to draw the function with a pencil, it would not be necessary to lift the pencil in order to draw the whole function. The function is also differentiable in (a,b), this is because the point b is not included, so even though is not differentiable in b, it is in any other point close to it.

I sure hope that this helps.
