There : There are bumps at the back of the tongue that are likely normal anatomy. Try googling an image for "circumvallate papillae". You could also have a prominent lingual tonsil. Things that are more concerning would likely grow and cause other symptoms, pain with swallow, ear pain, problems swallowing, other lumps in the neck, voice changes.
