Hi, it could be a Lymph node . In babies they are found on the back of their skull . It can also mean that ur baby is fighting some kind of infection ...could be an infection due to cold or something . My 15 months old daughter had a pea size one behind her ear . So we took her to doc and he showed us one behind her head to . However like Amy says pl do make a visit to doctor just for ur concern . Take care . may Almighty bless u , and ur little angel .
