The Golden Bump

My golden was born with a very pronounced bump right on top of his head in between the ears. The bumb is about 2 inches long from front to back and about a 1/2 wide. It rises and falls like an arch about 1/4 high at the top. This is actually part of his skull and not soft tissue. I've had many people tell me that this is just a quirk of the breed and is supposed to be there. I've had others tell me that this is very unusual and most goldens don't have it. So, everybody, start petting your golden on top of the head and let's take a survey. Which is true? Do I have anything to worry about?
