Tiny small bumps on forehead? Clogged pores?

Hi. I have these really really tiny bumps on my forehead and i've had them for about 3-4 years? It started when i was about 12-13, i usually had pimples on my forehad but after a while they just stopped coming and instead i got these ugly small bumps. When i use foundation you can see it clearly, especially in good lightning. So, i have been reading about this, and thinking that it might be clogged pores? But i don't know, because they are soo small, i mean really small. Also i'm 15 right now, i have mild acne around my mouth but only in the winter.

I'll put a few pictures so you can see how it looks like. Anyone that's seen anything similar?

They look like some closed comedomes considering the appearance is white.  You need to use a more aggressive exfoliating soap or buy yourself a little exfoliating untensil.   If you have a comedome extractor you could be a little risky and fix it all by thoroughly covering your face with a hot towel for 5 minutes to ensure the maximum dilation of pore size. 

Then be accurate with your movements and have a few pre-soaked cottonballs with a good astrigent/toner/antibacterial solution.  My go to witch hazel as hydrogen peroxide inferior to benzoyl peroxide and isopropryl alcohol can be exceedingly dehydrating to the skin and it's capable of dissolving organic compounds such as lipids.  So there could a possibility of smearing around cellular debris besides cleaning.

Hi. Before that, do you have bangs /fringe? I also have those small things on my forehead lately after I cut my bangs. I think oil from my face and my bangs mix with dirt and sweat (because it's so hot and humid here in my country) which make little bumps on my forehead appeared. But now my forehead almost clear from those bumps. So I always put away my hair from my face I am at home and I exfoliated every 3 days and then put face mask (I mix 2 tbs cooked oatmeal, 1 tbs Honey, 1/2 tbs milk, and 4 drops of tea tree oil) for 15 minutes every night. I hope this will work for you too.

Can someone please help me get rid of these. I think they are clogged pores since my forehead tends to get oily throughout the day. My skin is completely clear on the rest of my face but my forehead has really bad clogged pores . Can someone please tell me what has helped them. 
I have inserted a pic of them
