A 17-year-old female asked:

Are the foliate papillae supposed to look a bit pimple-like and pumpy?

Papillae: The foliate papillae can look plump and pimply.

Yes: Like little round ottomans with flat tops. If you are concerned, there's nothing wrong with having a Dentist take a look. What is wrong is going more than 6 months without a dental examination, as dental diseases are usually harmless at their inception but more treatable (less costly) if treated early. So go for it, see a Dentist.
