In brief: Get checked out

More than likely, this is a fungal infection, but the only way to tell is by getting a biopsy/ culture of the clumps by a dentist or oral surgeon.

In brief: Are you a smoker?

When i hear about itchy bumps on the roof of the mouth, occurring over a long period of time, i think of a condition seen in smokers.
This causes a cobblestoned surface to the roof of the mouth and results from irritation from the tobacco smoke. It should be evaluated by a dermatologist who is familiar with oral diseases to make sure it isn't something more serious.
