Thanks for writing to us.

I understand your concern.

In this case it seems to be superficial impact in temporal region.

Any kind of trauma to head need to be monitored for at least 24hours

I suggest you to
-apply cold compresses over injured area
-give acetaminophen for pain releif if needed.
-observe him for warning signs of head injury that is vomiting,altered behavior,any abnormal movement,bleeding from ear or nose.

In case you observe any of them take him to ER.

Hope I have answeref your query,if you have any further question I would be glad to help.

Wishing your child good health..
God bless..
