In brief: Lymph node or cyst

Either an inflamed or infected lymph node or possibly something called a thyroglossal duct cyst.
Either way he needs an evaluation with your pediatrician and probably an ENT doctor.

In brief: See doctor

Likely you need to see a doctor. The lump could be a lymph node if he has had a recent infection.
There are other things that can cause swelling in the neck area -- see your doctor for evaluation.
