My 4 year old son has a black spot on his scalp. It is the size of a small mole, it is soft and doesn't seem to bother him. Any idea what it is?

In brief: Likely a mole

Skin imperfections are common and appear more & more as you age.
I would have the kids doc look at it at his next visit to assess it's character.Most are quite innocent in that age group.
