Hanging taste buds: Your choice of words do not describe any tongue malformation in my lexicon. Please seek examination by your General Dentist. If there is an abnormality your Dentist will treat or make specialist referral.

Probably normal: Everybody has a row of 7-10 prominent bumps on the back of the tongue, called circumvallate papillae. Google it; lots of photos are available.

Bumps on tongue: To make an accurate diagnosis, this needs to be seen visually, and requires additional information. Call your dentist for an examination.
