If it is painless or baby has no symptoms it is fine as there are few palpable lymph nodes around neck in babies ;they are of no worry untill they don't cause any discomfort.

IF it is asymtomatic there is nothing much to worry immediately,but a opinion from a surgeon is a must,just to confirm it is only a small mobile lymph node,if at all they want to remove,take to homoeopathy it is curable.
