Question about English (US)

I read some book where a mom said:

"You met my knucklehead son" and then another woman thought by herself: "You call your son a "knucklehead" "

and that made me think that this another woman thought that this mom insulted her son so that's why I'm asking which one is right: is this "knucklehead" insulting (like this another woman thinks) or is it a nice thing sometimes? According to English dictionary it means " a stupid person" and is an insult but I still think that does it still have a douple meaning, and one which is more positive? Because I highly doubt that this mom wants to insult her child, especially out of nowhere.
