In brief: Lymph node

If it is no larger than a pea and is mobile, it is a lymph node, (especially if it is on the back of the head) this is a common concern, don't worry unless it gets bigger.

In brief: Probably

It is either an inclusion cyst or a lymph node.
If it is not red, painful nor growing, then it is probably ok.
