I'm a 20 y.O. Male and I just noticed a tiny bump right below my eye/eyelash. It is not red or painful, just a noticeable bump like pimple. What is it?

In brief: Several possible

Numerous skin lesions could match your description.
Most likely are epithelial inclusion cyst, skin tag, papilloma, lid margin nevus, small chalazion among others. Malignant lesions like basal cell carcinoma are possible, but quite rare at this age. You should be examined by an ophthalmologist for diagnosis and advice, including possible removal or biopsy if the lesion is suspicious or bothering.

In brief: Lid bump

Your description sounds like an epidermal inclusion cyst.
See an eye doctor and have it removed if it bothers you.

May also be an early stye. Can try warm compresses for a few days, but best to see your eye doctor if it is not resolving.
