Thank you for posting your query.

It is possible that the head injury may not be serious and his symptoms may be because of concussion.

However, since about a week has passed after the injury, and his symptoms are still persisting, he should consult a doctor.

As of now, he can take symptomatic treatment, such as ibuprofen tablets for headache and betahistine for dizziness.

Best wishes,
