Hello, I have something on my head. My mum and brother says it was a pimple, but my mum is now unsure. She said it was a mole as I always had one there. I was picking at it earlier a bit. What is it and should I be concerned? I'm freaking out that it could be something bad

I'm not sure how long its been there or what colour it is.

It does not look like anything serious or anything to worry about.
However, having said that, just to be on the ultrasafe side, I would recommend that you should have it removed and have it tested in the histopathology laboratory.
It seems likely to be either a mole or a hemangioma from the looks of it. Both these conditions are harmless.
Let me know if you have more questions.
