In brief: Get them checked

At your age they might be lymph node cancer, which is quite treatable if you get a diagnosis & get started.
It might also just be inflamed lymph nodes if your scalp/skin has issues with rash/bug bites, skin infection, etc. You can suffer with the pain of not knowing or get moving and find out. Its up to you to do something.
