Many factors: Toddlers often become constipated due to diets with excess dairy and not enough water and fiber (fruits, vegetables, whole grains). A few cases of constipation are due to underlying illness, but most often it's diet related. Once the gut stretches with constipation it is a problem that tends to perpetuate. If diet changes alone don't help, your doctor might recommend medications.

Varies ?6-12 months : It is more important to burp very young infants as they have trouble doing it themselves. Once they get a bit older, sometimes as early as 6 months, they can burp well on their own. That would be when you can stop burping them.

Probably not: This is likely a slowly resolving hematoma, which is a blood collection under the skin, basically a significant bruise. Generally in children this old there will not be health consequences, but if the lump calcifies and hardens, it can be present for months or longer. Typically a cosmetic issue more than anything.
