We understand your concerns

You don't have to worry too much about it. The bump after a hit on the head is quite normal. Ice is good to prevent inflammation and for easing the impact. The bump should subside in two days. You should consult a doctor if there is any dizziness or unbearable pain with blur vision.
don't worry.
Get well soon.
