4 months old baby has small pink dot on his eyeball

My 4 month infant has small pink dot on his eyeball to the side of his cornea . Is this pink eye or just a burst blood vessel from crying?

If this dot is present there right since birth then it might be due to an abnormal eye pigmentation. If it has appeared in past few days then the chances are that it is due to a burst blood vessel in the eye. The burst blood vessel spot usually resolves in one month without any residual mark.
