Small cyst on palatalglossal arch, doesn't hurt, turning white. Thoughts ?

Hi. I have a small cyst on my palatalglossal arch. It has been there for several years. I recently noticed it turning white- almost like a small whitehead pimple . It does not hurt or cause any discomfort. My ENT who is very well-respected said it is nothing, but I want to get a second opinion. He said they are very common....thanks for your thoughts.
