Filiform Papillae: Filiform papillae are one of four types of small bumps located on the surface of the tongue. Filiform papillae do not contain taste buds as other types of papillae do. Filiform papillae are spike-shaped and cover the top of the tongue, giving it its rough texture and helping to grip food.
Conditions that afflict filiform papillae include white hairy tongue, black hairy tongue, infection, trauma, lacerations, and tongue lesions.
