I've noticed a little, white bump on the right, upper side of my tonsil arch area- what could this be?

In brief: Infection?
Could be a viral or bacterial infection, but need more information, like is there a sore throat? Sick contacts? Fever or nausea? Cough?

In brief: Prob tonsilith
Secretions from the tonsils can sometimes get trapped and cause white or yellow crusts that stick out from the tonsil.
They also can cause bad breath. Have a doctor look at it to confirm that this is what it is.
