Dental evaluation: There are many causes of bumps in your mouth and the only way to answer your question is by seeing it. So see a dentist asap to find out what it is and what treatment if any is needed.

See a dentist first: Some conditions like small bumps may require further assessment; tests and your dentist may schedule a follow-up appointment or refer you to a specialist to determine a diagnosis. See your dentist first for evaluation.

Parotid duct: If opposite your upper 6year molar, it's probably the place where the Parotid salivary duct empties into the mouth. That said, strongly suggest that you see your Dentist to make sure. All swellings should be investigated.
