That looks like a Hemangioma to me! They go away over time, but there's no telling how long it'll take to go away, and what the cosmetic outcome will be. There are treatment options, including laser, surgical excision, and steroids. A Hemangioma specialist could see your child and suggest the recommended course of treatment for him specifically.
