Possibly normal: If they are on the back of his tongue and they do not hurt, then this is normal.

Mix tsp of salt in 8 oz of warm water – gargle w this several times/day. You can gargle w Aloe Vera juice a couple of times per day. A mix of chamomile tea w honey & a small amt of lemon juice helps. ...Read more
