When I was a kid, my older sister helped my mom check my homework. She came every a moment to see if I was doing my homework. She was like a little 'picket' or 'inspector'.

Are they both correct? Which word is more appropriate? Thank you!

    No, we would not use "picket" here.
    You could use "inspector", but you need to explain a bit further what kind of image you are trying to give of your sister.
