I think these puffy nipples you are having come as a result of the breasts development due to hormone influence. It is a normal development for your age.

They will increase on size and them at the end of puberty will stop growing and will remain at the size of adulthood. You can wear a wide shirt and of a thick material as well as supporting bra.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
