Thank you for your query
You should show the lump to a pediatric surgeon. It can be a hematoma (collected blood) due to some trivial injury that he may have sustained while playing. It may be a minor skin infection developing. Or it may be something deeper. Since it is painful to touch, a doctor should have a look at it. Further tests and treatment will depend on the findings
Hope that helps
God bless you
