Canker-like sores on both sides of my mouth. Is there something wrong with my immune system?

In brief: Not likely

Canker sores are a not uncommon occurrence.
The cause is not understood and there is no definitive treatment although some people will try to shorten their duration by cauterizing them with silver nitrate. They do not indicate an immune deficiency (or at least one that has yet been uncovered).
