In brief: See your dentist

A bump between the teeth may have any one of several causes.
..It could be food trapped under gumline (such as popcorn kernel), a gum abcess or tooth abcess. See your dentist to assess what may be causing it.

In brief: Not good

You need a dental exam, with an xray.
Gums and tissues between teeth should be pink and relatively smooth. "bumpy thing" could be a tooth or gum abcess.
