Brief Answer:
Can be a small hematoma.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
A small bruise with a white knot can be a small hematoma due to some injury in the area. The white center can be suggestive of a resolving hematoma. In case there is pain and swelling in the area then an infection needs to be ruled out. Otherwise there is no need to worry. This is likely to subside on its own.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
