Default Bumps on my 6 week old baby's head...

I'm a first time mommy, and am extremely paranoid. My breeder was great and answered all of my questions, have the hedgies in a good environment, and seemed great with them. She told me these bumps aren't anything to worry about, but I need some more peace of mind. And if not peace of mind, I need to know what to do. She doesn't seem too sensitive to them, but I may not have the best judgment on that quite yet because she's just generally jumpy (it's her first week home).
If anyone can help me or give me any advice, I would appreciate it greatly. Thank you so much.

I can't figure out how to post pictures here, so please go here to look at the pictures of the bumps:

Julia I'm fairly certain that those "bumps" are part of your hedgie's brow. Rowdy has them too you probably notice when she's relaxed you won't be able to see them and when she's a bit huffy you'll notice them more.

It could be her brow, but try to get a look at them when she's calm and see if they still appear inflamed. It could be an ingrown hair or infection.

I don't see any bumps, just a normal hedgehog brow ridge. It could be that my computer isn't clear enough. Are you talking about the two large bumps that are separated by a bald patch, are there small bumps among the quills, are the bumps on her face and you can't see them because she's hiding it?

Thank you all, very much! You gave me peace of mind and I'm very glad those bumps are normal. I'm still learning!
