Is it soft because my son has a few of those. I think they are lymph nodes. The pediatrician said they are normal. He has them near his neck and up higher up on his head on both sides. If it bothers you, of course ask the pediatrician at the babys next visit. Try not to stress. All of us mommies do, but try not to.
