I started lifting heavy weights with compund movements, seeing them shrink a little bit and working on that, just don't want it to be there once i hit mo goal weight. I do a lot of benchpressing so my chest has gotten bigger.

Gynecomastia is the term that is used to discribe enlarged breast on males or "male breast enlargement " it does not matter if it is caused by fat or extra breast tissue! Now, the key thing here that I beleive that you may be looking for is.
A. Do you have gynecomastia?
B. Is it caused by fat or excess breast tissue?

A. I think you may have a mild case, not near as bad as many others that have posted, and as for (B) can't tell from a picture, but if it is excess tissue all the diet and work outs will not reduce it! That requires surgery.

Gyno? Yes.
Bad? Eh... just don't gain weight.

My opinion is it looks glandular and would need surgery to have it begone.
I think you could get by without surgery, but if you're miserable that's what counts.

Mild gyne with puffy nipples.  Your choices are:  live with it (and disguise, when possible with a snug compression shirt), or have surgery.

Good luck either way.
