What do moles look like on babies when they first come up?

My DD had a tiny red mark on her cheek a week or so ago. I thought her nails got long and she scratched herself. But now it's getting a little raise and kind of bright red, and getting a little bigger. Do you think it's a mole coming up? My husband has a mole in the same place. (I don't know if that matters, lol)

  • my son did the first I thought it was a birthmark or a freckle, they turned into moles...I'd just keep an eye on it.

  • Sounds like a hemangioma birthmark, my nephew had the same thing.We thought he scratched himself, and it just got bigger, and was raised up. It went away by the time he was 2

  • No it's not a hemangioma birthmark, it's like the size of a pen mark or something when it came up. Now it's just slightly larger, but not like a birthmark.
