HI
Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, if this is asymptomatic then it may not be anything to worry, but in children it is not advisable to take this as granted and better to get done the clinical examination, some time it could be cold abscess, hope this information helps, take care and have a nice day.
I find this answer helpful
