While trying my new blazer, I felt some pricking in my underarm, like the left over part of a cut price tag. BTW, I'm wearing a tank, so my underarm dirctly contacted the jacket, I might feel nothing if I was wearing a tee or a shirt.

Then I checked the underarm area, initially found nothing, but when I moved and rubbed around the lining, the tip of these things show up as they penetrated the lining, then I pull them out with a plier. They felt like plastic, anyone knows what these are?

That is part of the padding. Historically, horsehair was used. Nowadays, it's usually synthetic. Due to its relative thinness/sharpness, with time it can sometime works its way through the layers of fabric. Nothing to worry about, really.
