Hey guys wanted to get some info if any one has had any issues such as these. They are small bumps like pimples but they are not pimples they look more like extra skin but in small balls.

Here is a close up.



They started about a month ago... any ideas guys.

It looks like the warts I've seen near the mouth but I haven't seen them around eyes. They usually fall off after a month or so. Still I'd go to the vet to be safe.

Yes it looks like "puppy warts" (Papillomatosis). It is a common viral wart in puppies. They occur around or in the mouth but can pop up anywhere on the face including around the eyes.
As G_R said, they usually fall of after a bit, as the pups immune system starts to kick in. Still, sometimes the vet prefers to excise them.

McCoy had a huge one on his muzzle and I kept asking our vet (who is family and a good friend) to cut it off. He just said to let it be ,and sure enough, after a few months it just dried up and fell off.

If that's what it is... They are benign, but they are contagious. So close to the eyes, I would have a vet check it out.
