Cannot diagnose: Without seeing these it is impossible to tell what they are, but your second option seems reasonable. If they go away, do not worry. If they get worse or there are more, see someone sooner. Good luck and have a good weekend.

Irritation: Since you have no pain they are not likely cause by the virus that causes cold sores. If adjacent to a tooth it could be your tooth brush is not drying out completely between uses. Alternate TB if this is the case. Foods can irritate minor salivary glands or smoking. All of the above should clear up in 2 wks or less. If not, you need to see a health professional.
