In brief: Normal to have them

It is normal to have bumps in the back of your tongue.
They are called circumvallet papilla. They are about 8 to 10 bumps surrounded by moats locate in a v in the back on the tongue. They are part of the taste bids in your tongue. They are normal. They will not go away.

In brief: You don't.

The 'bumps'' on the back of your tongue are circumvalate papillae-type of taste bud.
The bumps in the dude of the tongue in the back are tonsil tissue (like the 'golf ball' looking things in your throat. All are normal.
