Small child, head injury, large lump formation, soft spot in the centre of it. Cause of worry?

My 4 year old got hit in the head around 3 pm with the trunk lid while it was being closed. She immediately developed a large bump on the top of her head where she got hit. She didn t lose consciousness , pupils are reacting fine, complains of a little headache , no vomiting , eating and drinking fine, not sleepy, but she has a soft spot in the center of that bump, do I need to be concerned?

Thanks for your query
There is hematoma formation at injury site due to rupture of small blood vessels,
this is very good that your child is fine.
I suggest you to apply ice compresses over affected area,give paracetamol for pain relief and continue observing for warning signals for 24 hours.

Wishing your child good health
God bless,
