Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Your kid might be having an abnormality with spine.It is important for you to evaluate this with a Pediatrician.Even though she looks fine , this need to be evaluated.
It could be a cyst arising from the spine or a benign swelling.These can affect baby`s growth in future.
Take care.
