Hi,
Welcome to HCM!

It can be a nevus .
Is it over the upper eyelid only or over compete eye?
What was the doctor's opinion?

Good luck

Hi,
It can be a nevus or mole.

The baby has to be seen by an eye doctor ,when stable otherwise.

This is to see whether there is any involvement of the inner part of eye or it is only superficial on the skin only.

God bless
