Can you upload a close-up photo(s) to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see the icon) or you can use an external app such as I can be more accurate if I can see what you're seeing. If these "black mounds" are located symmetrically in her mouth, they indicate normal anatomical structures.
