White spots in baby's mouth could be milk. It could be bits of spit up. It could be thrush, a form of yeast infection.

Kidshealth.org mentions something I have never heard of:

"When your newborn opens his or her mouth to yawn or cry, you may notice some small white spots on the roof of the mouth, usually near the center. These small collections of cells are called Epstein's pearls and, along with fluid-filled cysts sometimes present on the gums, will disappear during the first few weeks."
