In brief: Canker sores

The best way to find out what is going on is to see a dentist or oral,surgeon.
They can tell you if it is just canker sores or herpes or something else. We can't answer here you need an exam.

I agree. Any sore that lasts longer than 10 days, or reoccur, needs to be clinically examined.
