Hi thanks for your question.
CT scan head of your son is normal, so there is nothing to worry. Some amount of swelling is expected due to soft tissue injury. Road traffic accidents are known for infection, so some swelling could be due to super added infection to the soft tissue injury.
Hope this answers your question.
