Child with dent on left side of head, that area does not hurt at all. Is it common?

hi good night, i live in trinidad and i have a 3 and a half year old son and i only today realised that he has a dent on the left side of his head. i do not know if at that age if their head changes or what, i have a 13 year old and we never went through that sort of thing. I am wondering if it was always there and maybe i just never noticed it before. He says that the area does not hurt at all but i am overly concerned. any feed back will be greately appreciated. thank you and all the best for 2013 and beyond.

Was any history of trauma to head in the past?This dent is looking like it was present since birth.As it is not causing any discomfort nothing to worry.
Some deviations in head size and shape and some irregularities are common and nobody's head is symmetrical so nothing to worry.
