A soft lump on foals jaw??

Well I've had him for little over 3 days now and I just noticed a strange lump on his jaw. It's right between the bones and it's soft. Not hard. It's about the size of a grape and there's only one bump.

It feels a bit warm and it doesn't seem to bother him at all when I touch it.
He's 4.5 months old and I'm just worried.
I'm having my vet come sometime this week, but I just thought I'd ask a few people if they have had anything like this with a young baby?

He has a little bit of a runny nose but it doesn't have a smell and it's not major.
It just barely runs but you can notice it if you look.

He hasn't been acting weird or shown any signs of pain or anything.
He eats and drinks fine. Doesn't seem like he has any problems there.

I tried to get a good picture of it, but he seemed to want to eat my phone, so I got the best one I could get. Lol.

I'm by no means an expert, but it sort of sounds like Strangles. Was he quarantined before you got him, if you know?

My gelding has had one of those ever since I first got him. Except his is a little farther back than your horses is. When my vet came out for their yearly exams he stated it was normal, but I'd probably get it checked out just incase. :)
