Thank you for your question.Your tonsils are normal. The areas that you have pointed to actually are aggregates of lymphoid tissue, tissue similar to that in the tonsils.It does not indicate anything serious or anything to worry about and is a normal variation.Let me know if you have more questions.Please rate me by clicking on one of the rating options (stars) at the top right hand corner when you are done asking.Kindest regards

Thank you for your fast reply. I was worried that they are tonsils stones.
I have one more question, because the aggregates are very visible, could that suggest that there is some kind of inflammation or infection going on nearby?
