Mole on top of head in a child with center black dot. Should it be of concern?

My 5 year old daughter has had a mole on the top of her head for a couple of years and her pediatrician has seen it and was not concerned. Just last week my husband noticed that the mole had a black dot in the center of it. Should we be concerned? We go back to the doctor next month for her annual check-up. Is that soon enough for her pediatrician to look it at?
