Hi,
Sorry about your son's problem.
Does he. have any pain or swelling anywhere where he was hit?
If there is none, you need not worry.
Just look for any hematoma ( bluish discoloration) .
Sometimes hematoma or swelling can appear after 24 hrs depending how harsh was the hit.
If no symptoms or signs by 1-2 days , there should be
no cause or concern!

All the best

God bless

Hi,
If he has pain and soreness ,take him to ER! XXXXXXX abdominal injuries can present like this.
May be an ultrasound will be needed.
The doctor can examine him and decide about this.

Good luck
