White bump gums 6 month old male f3b?

Can anyone tell me if these white bumps on my 6 month old male f3b kitten is normal? They are located on each side. Are these premolars?

Diet:
Raw chicken thighs and liver. Just recently, I stopped adding supplements and hearts because his stools were runny, and that seems to have hardened them up a bit.

Other Health:
12.5 lbs., very active, neutered at 5 months, no other issues.

Behavior:
When I got him, he was basically feral. The breeder was very sick, so he didn't have any human interaction. Needless to say, he was a bit of a handful at first, but he has acclimated very well and no longer has any behavioral problems. DSC00505.JPG DSC00504.JPG

Errr- this one, I can't say, but if you are seeing it in the same spot on both sides, I would assume you are right. Per? Per- where are you on this one?

Not sure what that is, and not sure why there are no other teeth in the immediate area. If these bumps are new and are growing it might be a teeth but it is not normal. I would have a vet check him out.

I would also change his diet as he is NOT getting the nutrients he needs...you can go back to adding hearts and change supplements...

Are these really bumps or just a difference in pigment?

And yes, you definitely need to get him on a balanced diet. If you are going to feed raw exclusively, then you need to follow a whole prey model or get whole prey and/or add supplements. Raw feeding is excellent as long as you are 100% committed to ensuring what you are providing is nutritionally complete. It's not something you can "kinda do" or do half heartedly if it is your cats primary nutrition source. Taurine deficiency alone will cause any number of serious health issues including heart damage and death.
