I have never heard "pollen on a back" used as an expression before, and a Google search for that exact phrase only turns up this thread and someone's vacation album mentioning literal pollen on the literal back of a bee. I think perhaps you misheard.

If you think it is related to praising someone, could it be "A pat on the back"?

It may be one of those idioms that have been recently made up (may have been made up from scratch or by distorting an old, common idiom as Susan612 suggested) and only known by a limited number of people.

I think "pat on the back" is a very likely suggestion.
