Like Sarah said,it could be thrush. The doctors can give you an oral cream to apply in your babys mouth. My son had it when he was a few weeks old. I tried the a tiny bit of the cream (curios mommy) it was sweet and not bad at all. It was called Daktarin.

It could be a thrush (yeast) infection. It does need to be evaluated by a doctor and if it is thrush a "mouthwash" that you will swab his mouth with will probably be prescribed.
In the mean time, at 1 month there isn't much you can do except gently wipe his gums with a clean moist gauze pad or your finger wrapped in a clean, damp washcloth.
