Thanks for the query

The bump on your child's head is fine and should resolve on its own. You can apply some warm compresses on the bump to hasten recovery. If your child has been doing well so far and is feeding and playing normally, there is nothing you need to worry about.
Hope that helps
Let me know if you have any more concerns.
