In brief: Not to worry

If it is a cosmetic issue later on, you can always go see plastic surgeons or cosmetologist etc.
Bald is beautiful. A lot of people are shaving their heads off.There is hair implants now too.Make a decision when child is older.Your child may have different thoughts then.

In brief: Cutis aplasia

This sounds more like cutis aplasia,a problem that is most often seen at the top of the head.
It is thought to represent impaired blood flow to the skin during the later stage of pregnancy when the site is pressed against the uterine wall & or a bony prominence.Regardless, this hairless area can be removed at some point in the future & a creative surgeon can bring nearby hairy skin over to cover it
