My 6 year old has a tender spot in back of his head since 3 days ago, it hurts when he touch it, what it could be?

In brief: See his doctor

It sounds like it could be a skin infection, perhaps from a bug bite.
Depending on how large it is, if it is getting worse day by day, and how tender it is, he may just need antibiotics to treat it. If your doctor thinks it is an abscess (a pocket of pus in the skin), they may want to drain out the fluid. That will make it easier to treat with less pain. Warm packs and pain relief can also help.
