What are the symptoms indicative of CT scan to be done after falling head first ?

When to go for a scanning after head injury of a child? Abhay 8years boy got a fall from a height of 6ft backward. He got hurt on back of head and on the backbone. After half an hour he is all right. Now he is attending school, playing with friends. He also eats properly. Now he is not having pain anywhere. From sunday evening till now, we are not seeing any defective behaviour. What is the symptom to get him for a CT scan , if it is required?
