Thank you for posting your query.

The symptoms of concussion usually lasts for a few days to a few weeks. It depends on the severity of head injury too.
The dent on the skull could be due to a minor fracture. If it persists, you can get a CT scan of the head done.

Please get back if you require any additional information.
