Hi and welcome to HCM. Thank you for your query.
in most cases this is nothing serious and it could have been some hit or sprained ankle and it should pass after pain subside. If this persist then you should visit doctor and do leg xray and neurologic examination. Till that just be sure that he rests with elevated leg and do streching exercises with him. Wish you good health.
