My son has just turned 2. When is was around 6 months, old I

My son has just turned 2.When is was around 6 months, old I noticed what I know now was is occipital glands at the back of his head.After going back and forth to Dr was told they were okay and not worrisome. When he hit 1 year, the Dr did a blood test, CBC (Complete Blood Count) and Film, which was normal. Thank goodness.As I say he's now 2 and I still noticed these Occipital glands they've not gone away (ie, I can still feel them) they both move under my fingers very easily, feel like bean shape, not massive, but not tiny. Honestly I can't recall if they're larger, as that's hard to recall and map but definitely not worryingly larger, but Yes still there.I don't want to keep going to the Dr's but on the same token want to know, if this is indeed a common finding amongst babies/toddlders.As a comparison, I have felt the same Occipitials on my nieces head, maybe not quite so prominent, but yes they are noticeable on her too.I should probably point out my Son, often has Eczema on his face - could this have an effect on the Occipitals?Please advice and thank you.
