Throat hurting, tonsils look deformed. Small tonsils with bad smelling bumps. What could this be?

Hello, recently my throat has started hurting so I looked in the mirror at the back of my throat and realised that one of my tonsils looks deformed. It s a lot smaller and bumpier than the other and quite yellow. Also there have been soft white balls of something building up on them and when I cough them up they smell quite bad. Do you have any idea what it is?
