Kitten with lump on belly

Hi, i' ve just got a kitten, we' ve had her for just over 3 weeks now, i took her to our vet last week so she could get her shots and de-worming and all of that and the vet said she was fine. This week i found a lump on her belly, toward her back legs, which im a bit worried about. The thing about it is that its not solid, if that makes sense, it more feels like its a build up of liquid. Could it be her " belly button" ? Or should i take her back now for a check instead of waiting for when she needs to go back for her booster shots in a month?

Probably just a hernia that can be fixed when she is spayed.

Probably a hernia - may be innocuous, but if it becomes trapped (or strangulated - google it), it could have serious implications.

As Carol says - better safe than sorry: ask the vet.
