Try the following entire source code for a three-dot menu:

index.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
        <head>
            <title>Three Dot Menu</title>

            <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.3/jquery.min.js"></script>

            <style>
                *{margin: 0;padding:0px}

                .header{
                    width: 100%;
                    background-color: #0d77b6 !important;
                    height: 60px;
                }

                .showLeft{
                    background-color: #0d77b6 !important;
                    border:1px solid #0d77b6 !important;
                    text-shadow: none !important;
                    color:#fff !important;
                    padding:10px;
                }

                .icons li {
                    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #fff;
                    height: 7px;
                    width: 7px;
                    line-height: 0;
                    list-style: none outside none;
                    margin-right: 15px;
                    margin-top: 3px;
                    vertical-align: top;
                    border-radius:50%;
                    pointer-events: none;
                }

                .btn-left {
                    left: 0.4em;
                }

                .btn-right {
                    right: 0.4em;
                }

                .btn-left, .btn-right {
                    position: absolute;
                    top: 0.24em;
                }

                .dropbtn {

                    cursor: pointer;
                }

                .dropbtn:hover, .dropbtn:focus {
                    background-color: #3e8e41;
