Two weeks puppy has a head bump

Recently I had a litter. They are 2 weeks today. Sadly one of them was born lacking some development, weighing half compared to her brothers. I started to feed her, and now she's doing it really well.

 

The problem was, when I was feeding three days ago: she feel from my hand. I was holding her too delicately since I didn't expect her to be that strong and fight me when I was going to feed her.

 

She seem not to care about it. I examined her immediately and didn't get any bad impressions. But yesterday I found a little bump at the top of her head, next to her ears. I tried some cold and heat, but the thing seems to be a calcification.

 

Her health is really ok.

 

My question is, as she grows up, and her head gets bigger will also the bump grow with it? (Since it seems to be a calcification).

 

I would really appreciate your responses.

Do you mean the bump perfectly in the middle of the skull down past/near their ears?

For a skull injury, really a vet should have seen it  if it looks different to the other pups' heads ...

Personally i would have been to the vets & had it seen too .
No one can tell you over the internet .
It may be nothing ,it may be a haematoma ,it may something else

It's near his left ear.

 

The vet will see her tomorrow.

I would like to clarify: not asking for a vet advice on the web.

 

My question is only about any experience on calcified bumps and puppies that maybe a breeder would have: will the bump grow as the puppy does?

calcified bumps

I am no vet, but I really doubt a lump could calcify in 3 days. It takes some time to lay down bone.
It's great you're seeing your vet , when you can  ask all your questions ,  and get the explanations from a good source  :)
