Are small bumps under the epidermis on inner lip of your mouth normal?

In brief: Yes

The most common cause are tiny sebaceous glands (fordyce nodules) that appear as smooth bumps beneath the mucosa on the inner aspect of the upper or lower lip.
Occasionally, minor salivary glands can also be visible as small bumps. Show them to your dentist, primary care physician or ENT doctor if you remain concerned.
