What could a bump be that has appeared at the side of the head suddenly and it is not painful but is hard and situated around the temple area towards the hairline and the doctor just said to watch it?

A bump like this is usually an oil gland that has closed over. It's called a sebaceous cyst and as the doctor says, just keep an eye on it. Typically they take care of themselves.
