My Australian Shepherd Has a Bump on His Head

I have a one-year-old Australian Shepherd and just noticed a large bump on the back of his skull. Is this normal?

I read they call it a knowledge bump. Is this something I should be concerned about?

Hi! My Aussie too has this. I’m not sure if it is in fact a characteristic Aussies usually have. I was searching to see and came across your comment.

Yes! That's a common characteristic of an Australian Shepherd! No worries, something they ALL have.
