A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query and picture.

The small bumps on the back of the tongue are called lingual tonsillitis and are present in all people. When infected can get enlarged and may need treatment.
The causes of the coating can be:
Excessive tea and coffee consumption.
intestinal infection
Not cleaning properly.

Consult an ENT surgeon for clinical evaluation and treatment.
