Hi i can feel a hard long thing and a small ball type thing when i press my tongue on one side is it normal

Good morning, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today

This sounds like a small cyst which is quite common, they will get bigger over a few days and then should get smaller. A smooth lump is reassuring.

I would suggest if it doesn't resolve over a few weeks, then worth getting your dentist to check though.

Its not visible from outside just when i press my tongue i feel it

That is reassuring, they can still examine if for you if it does, but this is nothing to worry about.
