Weird growths on skin

Hi Doc - me again
My son (he turns 7 in Feb) has a few flesh-coloured growths on his skin - one at the back of his arm, on his inner thigh and on his back. They seem like skin tags but are a little bigger. Should I be concerned? He sometimes scratches and says they get itchy.
Thanks
