Hard,painful, and immovable lump below ear on jaw. Had wisdom teeth removed a couple months ago, could it be bone/tooth residue stuck in paritod gland?

In brief: Probably not

Please return to specialist Oral Surgeon or General Dentist that removed your wisdom teeth for reevaluation.
Referral to ENT may be prudent.

In brief: Lump on jaw

Possibly but unlikely - usually wisdom teeth come out intact - and any bony fragments are going to be large - is it on the jawbone? Usually parotid gland stones move with the parotid gland.
If its on the jawbone - probably should get it checked out.
