Some basics: If it is a cyst & has decreased in size, it may continue to shrink or not. It could be removed with a small scar through the eyebrow but in a 2 yo it would need to be done under general anesthesia ( cooperation issue) which I would avoid for something so minor. If it remains when he's older & he wants it off, do it then when it might be done under a local.
