If tiny white gold prongs have porosity spots, how much of a problem is this? I also thought porosity was in typically circular patterns but what I''m seeing is a straight line. The prongs are very tiny, would this weaken the prong? Thanks!

It''s unlikely, but keep and eye on the setting anyway, even on those that do not have any porosity - settings do tend to weaken a bit especially depending on lifestyle of wearer, so make sure you spot if it gets weak and get it fixed up.
