Hi Marie,
It could be something called sternomastoid tumour.It comes a few days after difficult delivery.The child may have difficulty in turning the neck on one side.
child needs physiotherapy and close followup for this.
There are some other causes also for neck swelling which need personal examination to assesss- difficult to pin point through net!!
Good luck
