Friend, the bumps in the picture are the bulbis glandis. This is erectile tissue in the penis of male dogs. These bumps are the ones responsible for locking when dogs breed. This is completely normal; when they become enlarged it means the dog has an erection. So, as soon as the erection goes down the tissue (bumps) will go down as well.
