You could contract it also by any contact including from your hand, look and see if you’ve got tiny bumps elswhere.
MC is a smooth topped bump and usually, but not always, has a central dimple.
Other painless bumps on the penis:
1) PPP (pearly penile papules) groups of bumps along the rim of the glans, usually in a row or clustered at the glan’s rim, have a smooth texture.
2 HPV (genital warts), these are distinguished from PPP by being fewer in number, not on the rim but rather on the shaft and under magnification have a cauliflower like surface texture.
3) hair follicles: the skin of the penis is so thin that a hair follicle creates a bump
4) nevus or mole (red or darker tan or brown), not in a cluster.
About parental notification: I think it depends on the state.
