Calcified hematoma

There's a lump between the eyes of my 2 year-old nephew since two weeks ago. The size hasn't reduced and today it looked more reddish than a couple of days before (seems like he bumps again?). It's not painful on pressure now. He was born with planned C section but the doctor use vacuum to extract the head and to this day there is a calcified hematoma on the vacuum area. What I am really worried about is whether the lump between his eyes will stay like the one on his head or it will resolve somehow.
Do you have any suggestion on what to do? Is this still consider acute? Can I try anything other than operation at this moment? When should I consider a surgery (plastic surgery!? or ?)? Is there any tendency of someone to have a calcified hematoma?

Thank you for the answer.

The lump between your nephew's eyebrow is most probably a dermoid cyst and not a calcified hematoma.  This needs to be confirmed by his pediatrician who can also recommend a plastic surgeon with whom to consult and confirm the diagnosis.  Surgical excision is usually the treatment of choice
