It depends on where the lump is. My baby had two lumps on the bottom back of her head where the glands are back there and when I took her to the doctor he said that when the babies have cradle cap that the glands swell at the back of the head.

It could also just be a little bump to the head. My two month old developed a squishy lump on the back of his head. I took him to the doctors and they weren't sure what it was. We had a CT scan and it proved to be similar to what baby's have when they are born. They said he probably bumped his head on something. I would call the doctor to check, but it's probably nothing.

It depends on what the bump is like. It's always best to have a doctor take a look. It's probably fine, but better safe than sorry you know. Its normal for there to be a bump there up until the child is almost a year old. The bump is the soft spot where the bones of the skull are not fused together yet so the baby's head can flex to oval during delivery. It will eventually fuse together and make one one solid bone structure. Until the child gets older, the soft spot will be an area of safety concern.
