Leaf, it turned a faint yellow. Also many of the leaves are drooping. The coleus is also turning purple in some places, mainly near the bottom. The bumps don't appear near the top so it may be roots.
I had taken a cutting of my coleus and started to regrow it, the roots do grow out of the side just like the bumps (which are also on the cutting). So that's good that the bumps are just growing roots, the dying leaf and drooping leaves may be something else.
