In brief: ?????

Do you mean outside the skull or inside the skull? Is this something you can feel on the side of your head? Because you said "frontal lobe," but the frontal lobe is on the other side of some tough bone.
If you mean actually in the brain, you'll have to explain "soft spot," because the living brain has roughly the consistency of raw egg yolk. It's ALL soft. Please repost with clearer wording.
