Black or blue spots on scalp

I have an 8 yr old son who keeps his hair very short. I noticed since his last hair cut that he has between 4-6 blueish, blackish spots in different areas on his scalp. They are not raised, but I am concerned because when I do touch them he tells me they are sore. He doesn't have any other symptoms such as itching, red or flaky scalp or hair loss. Just these spots. Should I be concerened? What might be the cause of this?

My 7 month old has the same thing. They are really light blue areas on her scalp. So i would REALLY love to know the answer to what these are.
