Small child having purple lump on head above ear, growing and shrinking in size. Causes?

My son has a purplish bump on the side of his head above his ear, hes about 2 and 1/2 months. It doesn t seem to hurt him, its been there for almost a month and his pediatrician thinks it might be some type of birth mark.. I m not sure though.. It got bigger for a couple days then it has seemed to get a little smaller.. ? What do you think it is?
