Lump in the middle of forehead. Not itchy. What is it?

My son developed a lump in the middle of his forehead, running in a vertical line from the hairline to just above his eyebrows last night. It was not caused by trauma, nor is it a bite. Today the bump is larger. He says it doesn't hurt and hits it to prove his point (he's 9...and compulsive...). He says it doesn't itch. Any clues?
