One of my gums was swollen for a few days, when it came down, there was this white little bump on it. What is it?

I don't smoke nor drink, unfortunately due to the pandemic, I haven't been able to go to the dentist for checkups. I feel neither pain nor fever, I have no loose teeth,

Good day
This could be the draining sinus of an abscess. Sometimes a tooth can have a cavity in between the teeth that you can't see. A draining sinus also prevents a pressure build up, and this might be why you aren't experiencing any pain. For a better evaluation, a x-ray of your teeth will be required. Best to make an appointment with your dentist. You can try rinsing with some saltwater in the mean time.
