In brief: Possibly a cyst

While this could be nothing, it is possible that you could be developing a problem known as a pilonidal cyst.
You should have it checked soon, as the only treatment is surgical.

In brief: This

This could be a boil or cyst, specifically in that location a pilonidal cyst is very common.
These are very painful, often recurrent cystic lesions that occur in the superior aspect of the gluteal crease (superior crease of buttock). Drainage, antibiotics, warm compresses, or surgical excision are the typical modes of treatment. I hope that helps!
