What is this bump on the roof of my mouth that appears only when I eat certain foods ?

I am a 35 year old female. I have a small clear (looks like lie bump normally on tongue ) but in the roof of my mouth. I can scrape or pop it and it goes away. But it seems like when I eat certain foods (bacon, ribs and pork chops) it comes back. What is this? This has been there on and off for about three weeks now.

It may be ectopic salivary gland or otherwise which needs physical examination and if needed relevant invesigations to confirm and proceed further.
