Unhappy Betta has white pimple looking bumps??

Today i woke up and went to feel Alfonso ( my betta's name ) and i noticed that he has 3 white, pimple looking bumps on his head above his right eye. i know for a fact that they were not there last night cuz i was looking at him and he was doing tricks for his food ( he does this at night some times ) What could this be?? I'm worried that he's sick. his behavior hasn't been any different and he's been eating the same. He's a very happy fish, always swimming around back and forth, twirling, blowing millions of bubbles, always comes up to greet people when they put their face by the tank.
