Strange thing on tongue

The other day I was trying to get some hair out of my mouth and I ran my fingers across my tongue and felt something kind of strange. I went to the mirror to take a look and there was something strange on my tongue. It's on the top of the tongue, just a little bit back from the tip on the left side of it. It looks kind of like an elongated papillae of some sort but I'm not really sure. It was the same color as the rest of my tongue originally but since I've been picking at it a little bit the tip of it has turned white.

Anybody have any ideas as to what this could be? Any ideas would be helpful.
