This is Dr. David

this could be due to ingrown hair follicles or blocked skin pores causing subaceous or epidermal cyst on the top of his head

they could be infected if they hurt when touched.

he should see a skin doctor or his primary care doctor

they might need to be squeezed to release pressure.

or he might need a course of antibiotics to treat an infection.
