In brief: Depends

Depends what you mean by "normal".
....Aa lump behind the ear may be a lymph node that is enlarged...That is normal as it is doing its job. If it is infected it will be tender. It may or may not be related to a sharp headache. Your symptoms are best evaluated in a visit with your physician so you can be examined more details obtained. This is hard to answer without seeing you.
