They could have been there from birth and grown larger into adulthood and you never really paid attention to them. I have done a lot of research on this and found nothing on this sort of thing. Think about what you have been doing. If the lumps seem to be on the same spot on each side of your skull then perhaps you are wearing a bike helmet or if you are male, helmets in sports and it's irritating your skull causing the lump. It could also be bony spurs, but this is unlikely. Any lumps should be checked out by your doctor.

What would make the bone in your head move?

There are a few things that could cause the bone in your head to move. One is if you have a tumor on or near the skull bone, it could put pressure on the bone and cause it to move. Another is if you have a fracture of the skull bone, that could also cause it to move. And finally, another reason it could move is if you have an infection of the sinuses called sinusitis, and the infection spreads to the bones around your eyes. If any of these are causing your skull bone to move, you should go see your doctor.
