In brief: Salivary gland issue

Occasional there can be a stone formation, or a small infection on a gland.
Depending on the location- aphthous ulcers can create a painful situation for a couple of days too. Warm rinses should help expedite the recovery time.

If several appear and there is any fever or generalized symptoms it may be infectious. A mouth numbing mouth wash may help.

In brief: Salivary gland?

There can be fluid formed lesions that are formed by the minor salivary glands on palate.
Cannot diagnose without direct exam and should be looked at by medical professional.

In brief: Needs to be seen

A number of things.
The important thing is to know what it is and not what it could be. I suggest that you have him\her seen by a pediatrician or pedodontist asap for an accurate diagnosis.
