May be suture: The main suture line for most kids forms a T with the ear to ear line in back of the forehead and the middle one from the soft spot along the center toward the back. Some have a prominent suture line from the front of the soft spot running down between the eyes. A ridge in the forehead like a boat keel can be a transient feature in some kids. Confirm this with your doc. They usually grow out of it. ...Read more

Why do we get a bump when we hit our head? I was playing basketball and hit my head against someone's forehead and now I have a bump that hurts.

Contusion/hematoma: Contusion is our fancy word for bruise while hematoma refers to a collection of blood. You can develop a bump anywhere you get hit but it's more noticeable on your head because your skull is so close so surface that swelling can't go anywhere inwards so it swells outwards as a bump. You'll notice soreness on your thigh for instance when hit there but no swelling per se b/c it's gone inwards. ...Read more

The skin on it also often looks dark. Over a period of time it usually gets smaller and may go away. The best way to get rid of it is surgical removal, more for the cosmetic reasons, often not covered by insurances ...Read more
