Possible strawberry pest or normal structure?

I found little yellow oval shaped structures on my strawberry plant. They are only on 2 stems. Is this normal? This is my second year growing strawberries and I have never noticed them before. I want to make sure they aren't a pest! Thanks! I can post more pictures, if needed. They are about 2-3mm long.

This is the other stem they are on.

Those are root initials on the daughter plants. Hold them down on the soil and they will root. Then next spring they will be new plants in place or can be moved to expand your bed.
