Brief Answer:
Not worrisome as of now.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

I have gone carefully through your query and have checked the attached image. I understand your concerns. I suppose that the pimple is due to a bacterial infection (boil). You need to apply some topical antibiotic like Neosporin or T-Bact (Mupirocin) for the next few days. If the child is otherwise active and playful, you need not worry. If the child becomes lethargic or develops fever, it would be a good idea to visit a doctor and to get the blood tested.

Take care.
