Something wrong with my papaya

I just recently started growing a papaya.
I noticed these clear round balls all over it.
Any idea?

Hello Ingrid

It looks like sap. What about the rest of your plant (leaves, flowers if any)?

Hi Jalilu,
It definitely was all over the rest of the plant as well. It does look like sap and would that be normal for a papaya, but i was worried it may have been some sort of eggs or something else..
