Brief Answer:
Dilated blood vessels.

Detailed Answer:
Good to know your awareness.
Seen the photos; looks to be dilated blood spaces.
The penis including glans is made up of ''erectile blood spaces''.
The small lump is a collection of blood vessels and when filled will be seen as depicted in the photo.
There are no symptoms and this lumps is not causing any problem just take this as a normal variation.

Nothing to worry about this.
