Large yellow lump (perhaps his crop?)

I shower my rose breasted cockatoo (pink and grey galah) twice every week to keep his feathers in good condition, today after I gave him his shower I noticed a large soft yellow lump where the neck joins the the chest (I did not notice before because I have not been able to wet his chest before). He is not even a year old yet and is tame and in good condition. The lump retracts when I touch it. Is this normal?
