In brief: Could be anterior

fontanelle you are referring to.
Within the first two years the soft spots called fontanelles will be gone and the separate membranous bones will be linked by joints that look like stitches that are called sutures. Here's more info: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/002320.htm. Otherwise, if painful or bothersome, it's best to see your doctor for an in person examination.
