My daughter has a birth mark between her eyes that will be there one day and gone the next. The doctor said it's normal, it'll probably go away completely as she gets older. She also had a bruise looking thing on her arm that came and went. I took her to the doctor and they couldn't find anything wrong. One night after getting up to get a drink, I peaked in her room and finally figured out where the bruise was coming from. She was sleeping with her arm pressed against the crib... I put bumpers in her crib and it stopped popping up. If you're really concerned that I would take him to the doctor, it can't hurt to ask a professional... Good Luck!

You should consult with your doctor or pediatrician. While it could be a birthmark of some sort only your doctor will be able to tell you conclusively. When in doubt always talk to the professionals! Good luck!
