Is it normal to have bumps and ridges on the skull just around the ear? I noticed this for some time. Are there lymph nodes in the skull?

In brief: Historical

Years ago, people would predict traits and illnesses based on skull anatomy.
Yes, it is normal to have bumps and ridges. No lymph nodes in the skull, rather in the space between skin and skull.
