What could painful lumps on jawline indicate?

Hi I have noticed two matching (on either side of my face) small lumps about the size of a pea. They are in front of my ear, at the top of my jaw. They are quite tender to touch. But they are not getting any bigger. They have been there about 4 days now. Any ideas?
