I have never seen this, but I did it to myself once on accident.  When I was in the third grade I managed to run into a pole (don't ask, I was being stupid) and knocked myself out.  Somehow I managed to poke a hole right there with my earring!?!?!?  Weird and it hurt like he!!

Here is a BUMP for ya though.

I have only seen this as a piercing, i assume that since this is a child in her daycar that the child does NOT have this pierced, so i have no idea what this could be, but here is a bump for you

My son has those on both of his ears.  Some children are just born with them.

I have one.  It's genetic.

My ENT described it one time as an extra part of a eustation tube.  Kids should be encouraged not to pick at them, or ever put anything in it.  Once in a while mine will drain a little if I have a stuffy head.

it's genetic... like the opposite of skin tags.  or...the child has skin tags removed.  that is a common area to have skin tags on children

I have that. but mine is farther up. My dad, little bro, and my son have it.  I use to tell people i pierced my brain and thats where the stud was but that i had to take it out.  haha   Its just a genetic thing....nothing to worry about. I think its awesome that i passed it down to my son. It helps make us unique!

we have the "familia hemangioma"

my brother, sister, myself and all three of my children...all have the same exact birth mark.
