It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests.It could be a oral herpes lesion. If the lesion is not causing any symptoms, leave it alone, do not squeeze it. You may cover it with make up. If it does not resolve in a couple of weeks, it would useful to see a doctor. Wish you good health
