Gynecomastia yes or no
Your pictures are not really sufficient to give you online advice. I recommend that you see a board certified plastic surgeon in consultation to get more specific answers to your questions which can best be addressed after a thorough history and examination is performed.
Best of Luck to you!

Gynecomastia - Is This The Same Thing As Puffy Nipples?
Puffy nipples usually indicate breast tissue directly under the nipple areolar complex. The fat on your chest not directly related to the puffy nipples is known as psuedo gynecomastia, while that area directly under the nipple is referred to as true gynecomastia. No form of exercise will decrease the puffy nipples and, in fact, if you lose more weight, then the puffiness underneath the nipples will even be more obvious.
I emphasize with you however I would caution you to not waste any money on lotions and potions that claim to get rid of gynecomastia. Surgery, unfortunately, is the only answer.
