Hi,

Thank you for your query.

I appreciate your concern. I shall appreciate if you can upload a photograph of the spot that you are mentioning using the facility on this site as it shall help me in guiding you.

Usually white, glistening pearls are seen on the palate of newborns. These are known as Ebstein's pearls and nothing has to be done for them.

I hope I have responded to your query to your satisfaction. Please feel free to revert back in case you require any clarifications or have any other fact to share.

Regards,

RKK

thank you for that bit of information, i do understand what you are saying but that is not what i was referring too, my son is now 19 months old and has a lot of his teeth already, it seems to be closer to the middle of the roof of his mouth and it is about the size of a small pea, brownie/ black in colour
