What are these on my wall?

I just found these this morning as the morning light played in from my screen door. How do I get rid of them?:eek:

Just a bad mud job. Sand down, fill any spots that open up, then sand, prime, then paint. If you drag it out, it can take the whole weekend, so you have an excuse for not doing anything else.

I'm going to say nail pops.....that is assuming they used nails to attach your drywall.

Sort of common when the temp changes.

Scratch the mud off one hole....confirm that it is a nail. If so, if was me, I would pull out the nail and replace it with a drywall screw. The patch job is basically the same.

Looks like nail pops to me as well.

I vote for 3 nail pops and one chunk of mud that didn't get sanded out.

How far apart are they side to side. if about 16" or 24" then probably nail pops.
The center one may be nail pop of a glob in the paint or bad mudding.
