Puff of smoke

Regarding a 2002 Boxter with 100,000 miles. In the last few months, when starting the engine, a cloud of white smoke is emitted ocassionally - perhaps 3-4 times per month. What might cause this, and should I worry. I have always used Mobil 1.

Probably right. I just sometimes worry that I'm missing something.
