11 week old has white pimple like bumps on front of gums

My 11 week old has hard white pimple like bumps on the front of her gums. I don't think she is teething but they do seem to be sensitive. Any ideas what this could be? I can't find anything online to even point me in the right direction on this!
Dan Brennan, MD responded:
Gum cysts are very common to see in infants. They are usually 1-2 mm, white, hard and not painful. There can be one or a dozen. The good news is that they are not harmful and will eventually go away on their own.

Hope that helps.
