Everybody has a row of 4 or 5 prominent taste buds on the back of the tongue, about the size you describe--not in a straight row, but in a shallow V.  I forget the name of those specialized taste buds, but it sounds like that is what you are describing.  In other words, normal anatomy.  Definitely not an STD.
