Only one side of my tonsils has the spots?

In brief: Tonsil stones?

One common cause of "spots" on the tonsils that is painless, and harmless, are tonsil stones.
They can sometimes cause bad breath, but may be totally assymptomatic. Without seeing the tonsils it is impossible to diagnose (and that is not the purpose of this forum). I would recommend asking your dentist or medical dr the next time you see them or you can make a virtual appt at HealthTap!
