I painted the bathroom walls with Benjamin Moore paint. The finish was smooth initially, but within 2-3 days small “sharp” irregularities in the finish developed. They are about 1 mm in size and give the wall a rough sensation when I run my hand over it. What are they caused by and what is the solution?

Improper preparation and poor choice of materials… you need to start over by block sanding all the surfaces with coarse paper, then prime with a Pigmented Shellac Sealer Primer… then finish coat with semi gloss acrylic… but not Ben Moore… use Sherwin Williams Classic-99…
