My daughter was born with one in her eye. The squeeze was too much for her I guess. The doctors assured me it would be fine and go away. In about 3 days it was mostly gone and a few days later there was no trace of it. You may want to see if it bothers him and may need to see the doctor if you can see any mark on his eye ball itself. If he scratched it it could have problems and meds may be needed but if there is no pain, marks and the red starts going away you may be fine. See the doc if it seems painful or gets worse. A.
