Question: Visible follicles on scrotum

Sex: Male

On my scrotum, I can actually see the follicles. There is raised line about a quarter of an inch long, (which I am pretty sure is the follicle) and then the hair coming out of it. I can actually feel the raised follicle. It's hard. Most of these aren't red or infected, they are just there. I've looked up folliculitis, but those pictures don't look like what I have. I'd really like to know what this is. Thank you in advance!
