Today I found a weird blister type thing in my mouth, it doesn't hurt but it's like a bump and it looks like it's filled with a clear fluid. I am not a very sexual person and do not engage in risky sexual behavior. I haven't even kissed anyone, maybe shared some drinks in the last few months but that's it. Where and how should I get it checked? A dentist? A doctor? I don't know where to go and I don't have insurance so I'm worried about spending a lot of money. Is this something I should worry about? Or should I just wait it out and see if it goes away on it's own?

Depends where it is located sounds like it could be several things such as a cold sore which usually appears on the border of your lips or if it is inside your mouth it is more likely a mucocele you have lots of tiny salivary glands all over your mouth and sometimes they get blocked by tiny stones and can make it fill with saliva. Usually they resolve on their own and will pop sometimes they will come back in the same spot. Those usually appear where ever you have soft tissue in your mouth inside of your lips, cheeks, under your tongue, sometimes they can occur on the roof of your mouth too though. If the little bubble is on your gums then I would be more concerned. It could be an abscess, it is the spot where an infected tooth is draining. So if it is there in a few days or comes back you need to see your dentist.1
