Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic,
The bumps could be due to the development of hematoma in the scalp layers.
Watch for his activity, consciousness, for vomitings, abnormal behavior, and any bleeding from nose and ears.
If any abnormal findings report to emergency immediately.
Consult your doctor for the examiation once to look for any abnormal signs.
Hope I have answered your query.
