Brief Answer:
Most probably lipoma or sebaceous cyst

Detailed Answer:
The commonest reasons for such painless small lump are as follows:
Lipoma
Sebaceous cyst.
Both are benign, slowly growing.
Sebaceous cyst may resolve on its own.
Lipoma needs no active treatment.
W/F: Watch for:
Increase in size.
Pain or tenderness.
Skin color.
Any other symptoms.

I hope this answers your query.
