Lump after forehead lowering
What you are expreiencing is likely the scar around the stitch. That should soften on its own. Make sure to folow up with your plastic surgeon.
After surgery sometimes post op lumps can occur
After a surgical procedure, lumps can develop. These can be collections of blood, collections of fluid or soft tissue irregularities. The management of these can differ, and it is best to consult with your surgeon.
Fluid Collection after Scalp Advancement/Hairline Lowering
At this early time after surgery, this lump in the hairline after a scalp advancement is likely a small fluid collection. That should be absorbed and go down in the next month.

Swelling after hairline lowering
If the swelling is within the hair in the temple it may represent the bunching up of tissue that occurs when advancing the scalp forward. This always occurs to some extent unless hair bearing skin is excised and discarded( or used for grafts). This shrinks down by 6 weeks. There are other things like a blood accumulation or a stitch reaction that could create a swelling
