In brief: Get to Dr.

Hopefully is just that you were not familiar with the anatomy of your skull which probably has several lumps and feeling of a mass.
Other possibility is lymph node enlargement which could be associated to many conditions. Other masses...Lipomas, skin cysts, hemaromas, etc get examined by dr.

In brief: Probably normal

If you are referring to the knotin the midline at the back of the head, it is a part of the skull where muscles attach from the neck.
If it is something else, it could be a lipoma or small fibroma, but should be seen by your doctor.
