In brief: Anatomical

If she does not have any other symptoms, it is most likely a part of normal anatomy.
See your dentist if symptoms change.

In brief: Taste buds

These are taste buds.
They are larger on the back of the tongue. We have receptors that allow us to taste the basic different flavors. These are located on top of the taste receptor cells that constitute the taste buds. Those are the bumps on the back of the tongue and they are larger in some people than others.
