Could be a mucous retention cyst or even a salivary stone, depending on the consistency. If it enlarges, it could become symptomatic. I would suggest seeing a oral surgeon for evaluation.

I don't know of any home remedies that will help here, but you can wait to see if it changes in appearance. Any sudden enlargement, ulceration or symptoms, I would see an oral surgeon as soon as possible.

Most likely a mucocele (too high for salivary stone). While some may go away spontaneously, best to see an oral surgeon for proper diagnosis and biopsy. No home remedies - you have to find out what it really is. One article attached.
