What could be the sensitive lump on the right side of the lower back in a baby with cleft lip and palate and diagnosed with reflux ?

Hi, I have a 2month old baby who has cleft lip and palate. He was also diagnosed with reflux. I noticed tonight a large lump on his lower back on the right hand side that is hard and sensitive to the touch. Would this constitute an emergency?
