Many possibilities: Depending on how big the bump is it could be a salivary duct, or a ranula. A mucocele is another possibility. An ulceration or oral cancer are still other possibilities... So it is best if you go to see a dentist and they will give you a correct diagnosis. A biopsy may be suggested.

Salivary duct: Salivary duct and glands, sometime blockage causing enlarge clear bumps. If that is a not symptomatic don't worry about it. If that hurts then you may have a blocked duct then you need to see a dentist.

Maybe a cyst: From a salivary gland. You need to have an exam by an oral surgeon to determine for sure.
