Is it advisable to use cold compress after a child bumps his head?

hi just a quick question which I cannot seem to get a definite answer to, if a child bumps their head do you advise use of a chold compress or does this cause the swelling to go inwards?

Thank you for the inquiry.

first aid like cold compress is recommended. But it is advisable to check with your near by physician and if needed go for further diagnostic methods to find out any internal problems
