Gnocchi Help

I made gnochhi for the first time this week, however it doesn't look like the pictures or what I see in the grocery store.

Here is what I did....
baked 4 potatoes in the oven. Let them cool. Grated them with hand grater. Added a handful of flour and salt. Mixed it into a dough. Then made snakes, and cut them into approx 1-inch pieces. Put it in the fridge to set for about half an hour. Then I boiled them for about a minute to 90 seconds, till they floated on top.

My gnocchi were not smooth looking on the outside. They were sort of bumpy all around. Is this normal?

Did I put too much flour or not enough? What should i do differently?

Would like to give this another go.

Also, I know that some restaurants fry the gnocchi. How does this work? Boil, let dry, and then pan fry?
