How long have they been there? Are they in a row or anything?

Google pearly penile papules and see if that fits. You could also have something called balanitis. You should definitely let your doctor see it. If it's not hurting, it probably isn't herpes.

It doesn't sound like pearly penile papules. It sounds more like herpes or candida.

Pearly penile papules are REALLY, REALLY rare, and are harmless.

If it's actually PPP, enjoy them; they shouldn't bother you. Depending on the particular arrangement of these that you probably don't have, they could be a source of admiration, even jealousy.

Get it properly checked for diagnosis.
I don't know how rare they are - this puts the incidence of PPP at 14-48% - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2742148/

This says 8-43% - https://www.dermnetnz.org/topics/pearly-penile-papules, though it doesn't give a source.

"The incidence of pearly penile papules reportedly ranges from 8-48%. [2] Several reports suggest an increased incidence of pearly penile papules in uncircumcised versus circumcised men (22% vs 12%, respectively). One study found an increase in frequency in black versus white men, in those circumcised (21% vs 7%, respectively) and uncircumcised (44% vs 33%, respectively)."  https://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1058826-overview#a6

In any case, we don't know what you have, but you should definitely get it checked if you haven't already. Let us know what happens. :)
