    What type of layout are you using? You should use a JLabel to display the score.

    Take a look at these different layout managers. Position your JLabel above the JPanel.

    Well I'm using a GridBagLayout now and I'm writing the points on a JLabel and finally it wroked ^^ But I have something wrong on my code :s The text appears in center of JPanel instead of the FIRST_LINE_END. Can you please tell me what's wrong on my code?

    GridBagConstraints c = new GridBagConstraints();
     
    		label = new JLabel();
     
    		c.fill = GridBagConstraints.HORIZONTAL;
    		c.ipady = 40;	//Altura
    		c.anchor = GridBagConstraints.FIRST_LINE_END;	//Posição
    		c.gridx = 2;
    		c.gridwidth = 2;	//Número de colunas.
    		c.gridy = 0;	//Numero da linha.
    		add(label, c);
