Those are Tonsilloliths. Drop into my clinic for a clinical examination to confirm my diagnosis & to manage it appropriately.

Most probably you have noticed debris collected in the crypts of the tonsils which is not really abnormal if not associated with pain in the throat. They usually fall off on their own or you need to do warm salt water gargling. In any case consult nearby ENT specialist for confirmation of diagnosis
