Thank you for your query,
This bump is due to a contusion formed that time because of accumulation of blood in the scalp layers forming a hematoma.
Gradually the blood inside get disintigrated and get absorbed into the blood leaving no swelling.
But some time it get organized forming fluid or get calcified with a hard bump feeling.
Consult your Pediatrician to know any intervention is required.
Hope I have answered your query.
