What color is it, how big is it, does it hurt, how long has been there? Theses questions and others need to be addressed before we can give you a meaningful answer. Best to have his doc look at him. Usually these things are benign but definitely have it checked out.

Common to see inflammed taste buds, normally go away on their own within a week. If not, see your dentist!

Unfortunately, this types of situations actually have to be seen by a trained health care provider.

Until it is examined, and possibly a sample looked at under a microscope, you really can't tell. If your son remembers biting that spot or injuring it in some other manner, it may just be a scar, but again, it's only a guess until looked at properly.
