Hello. Welcome to HCM.
Head banging is a common habit disorder but the risk of injury wil depend on wher he banged n how severe was the blow. Minor bangings should not cause such symptoms like vomiting or vision disturbances.u can get a Ct scan of head plain n show him to a pediatrician.The doctor may also suggest ways to improve his head banging habit.thanx
