Child has dent in forehead after injury, swelling. What can be done?

Hi my daughter hit her forehead about six months ago and there is a dent there. When this happened she was 11 months old. We took her to the emergency room because there was allot of swelling on the location and under her eyes. Thankfully she was okay. The bump was there for at least a couple months and now there is a dent. Is there anything we can do about this?
