There is a small lump in the middle of my upper eyelid, is it a stye?

In brief: Probably a cyst

If the eyelid is not inflammed, not red, and not hurting, then you probably have discovered a chalazion, which is a cyst formed by the eye to seal off and prevent the spread of a stye.
If it is not bothering y0u by appearance or by symptoms, you can ignore it as it will cause no harm at your age.
