You may be noticing the lacrimal punctum.  You can google it and use google images and I suspect that is what you are looking at.  By the way this is a normal part of the eyelids and you have on on each upper and lower eyelid.  There are different causes of tearing - so you should probably see an ophthalmologist if your problem persists.
