Hello & welcome
you have to notice if this lump is present behind the teeth at the end of arch or is associated with some tooth.
Because if this swelling is associated with some tooth than this may be a periapical infection, and you have to visit your dentist.
But this is an eruption cyst if present at the end of arch & there is no need to worry this will subside by itself.
thanks & take care
