Our 8 week old has two lumps on his spine approx 1cm and 1cm

Customer Question

Our 8 week old has two lumps on his spine approx 1cm and 1cm between them. I would say they are located about 2/3 down his back. At birth , we noted one and now there is another. He was born with a dislocated hip and has been wearing a Pavlik Harness over his vest. We therefore don't look at his back too often and are perhaps distracted by washing him as quickly as possible to get the harness back on.Any idea what the lumps on his spine could be?
