Thanks for posting your query
Lumps on side of neck are more likely to be lymph nodes

Swollen gland in children are common after any head and neck infection and they are otherwise also palpable in thin and lean children

If he is not sick and there is no other symptom nothing to worry

In case they increase, he has fever of the skin over it gets red - approach your caregiver

Hope this helps
