It's hard to say...: To make sure we are discussing the same thing it would be best to have it evaluated. We would not want to mislead you based on something we may be picturing in our mind but may be different than what you actually have. Please see a dentist.

Small bumps: Yes it can be normal but without more information and evaluation it is impossible to tell if it normal for you. There are many salivary glands in the lips, cheeks, under the tongue and if you rub your tongue along those areas you will feel the bumps that are those salivary glands, but if the bumps are something you never noticed before you should have them evaluated to be sure.
