Hi Carley,
It is good that your son is having only headache and no other symptoms of internal brain injury.
Headache due to head injury persists for few days to weeks. Give proper rest to your son.
Headace can be relieved by pain killers to be given only after getting your son examined by a Neurophysican. He might suggest a scan of his head if he find it necessary.
