Moles on 8 year old

Good day

My 8 year old son seem to be getting more and more little moles on his back.

I, myself have quite a few moles over my body. He''s dad and uncle have lots of moles ranging from small to big ones.

My question is, one week there are no moles and then a week or two later, I notice some more.

Should I be worried. They are dark, round in shape and look normal to me, but I am just wondering if moles are genetic in origin?

Best regards
Tanya

The lesions do not sound as if they are cancerous but consult a dermatologist for an examination.
