This may be contusion with formation of organized hematoma because of fall or and old resolving Cephalohematoma or some times rarely a meningocele(which is a rare) as you don't know the exact fall history. As child is active and there are no other complaints nothing to worry. Consult your Pediatrician by appointment for the examination of swelling.
