Looks like Fordyce spots

Expert:  Zee J replied 18 days ago.

Fordyce spots are small yellowish or white spots on the head or shaft of the penis. Fordyce spots are sebaceous glands (tiny glands found near the surface of your skin) without hair follicles.

They can also appear on the inside of the cheeks or on the lips, and are present in 80 to 95% of adults. Fordyce spots are generally harmless and do not need treatment.

I’ve had line like snd bumps for 4 years how do I get rid of them
Customer: replied 18 days ago.
Cream or tablets
Expert:  Zee J replied 18 days ago.

They usually don't need any treatment. But if you really want to get rid of then you need to see a urologist who might prescribe you some creams containing Trichloroacetic acid or iostretinoin.
