My 7 year old has a pea sized lymph node on collar bone. no other symptoms. very movable. is this normal? should i worry?

I wouldn't: We have thousands of nodes scattered throughout the body & their resting size is about that of a pea. If that is what it is (sounds like it) I don't find it abnormal or significant.
