    They are little meaty things.
    Question is, are they good for anything?

    I believe it the remainder of the skin that was holding the tongue into the mouth and due to evolution we have slowly allowed our tongues to extend past the lips to benifit our survival. or for muff diving :P

    this person may have had a short frenulum which is the weird little flap that connects your tongue to the bottom of your mouth. When you have a short frenulum it keeps you from being able to stick your tongue out as well clear your mouth of food and even articulate some times. If this is what this person had, then those nubs may be left over when they cut their frenulum to free their tongue.

    They`re just the leftover from whatever model kit frame the tongue was taken from. The one who assembled that person must either have forgotten to remove them or been down right lazy. They can easily be removed with a hobby knife or a with a common file.

    The plica fimbriata folds of the tongue occasionally grow a bit of a horn-like fringe; I have a few minor ones in back. They`re not particularly common, nor are they anything special; your body just glitched out a little when it was starting up and added a little extra tongue-skin there.

    just in case anyone is seriously worried...they`re salivary glands. usually they`re not so pronounced they can get that way if you have a gland infection or blockage... or if you`re just built that way in the first place.

    I don`t know about the rest of you but I have little bumps there. Much smaller than in the pic. I really don`t care about it.

    What bugs me is the flap of skin between the bottom of the tongue and the top of the lower jaw. That gets in the way sometimes.

    Agree with Kleion, they appear elongated in some of the population. Example
    Another interesting tongue anatomical anomaly is ankyloglossia which is a persistent lingual frenulum

    ha! I have those too but when my tongue is wet they lie right against the tongue. But I could pull them out with my finger and yep, they are that long. Funny. Probably from constantly rubbing against one`s teeth.
