Welcome to Healthcare Magic
This could be congenital disorder of shape of the skull. If it is not cosmetically disfiguring or causing discomfort and symptoms then not to bother about. You can consult your Maxillofacial surgeon to determine any localised overgrowth of bones. Get a CT/MRI as recommended to look for any underlying tumors.
