Bump/Lump on my head

Hello my name is Brandon. And I recently felt a sort of firm bump on my head. It's not to big it's rather small. It's towards the middle right side of my head, about half an inch away for my ear (but not behind my ear). It doesn't it hurt when I apply pressure to it nor am I witnessing any perculiar symptoms. It's starting to concern me and I don't know what to do. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Its likely to be an infected hair follicle / boil. If there is any abscess formation, then it should be looked for and drained, accordingly. The area needs to be examined, first to decide on further management.

Wishing you best of health
