A few things: There are various things that can look like this on the skin. The two most common lesions are a lipoma or a cyst (typically a pilar cyst). While these are normally mobile, they can also be non-mobile. There are rarer lesions, such as other soft tissue and bony tumors or cysts. If it is bothersome or growing, I'd recommend having it evaluated by a dermatologist and getting it removed.
