Brief Answer:

Can be normal.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Labia minora has a bumpy loose goose bump appearance due to the mucosal folds of vagina associated with it.

It is normal but can be due to a herpes infection also if the area is painful.

In case there are no symptoms then there is no need to worry and consider it as a normal variation.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
