Hi...

I have gone through your query and here is my opinion.

It is quite reassuring that she is fine and there are no external injuries.

The symptomatology of a concealed head injury includes altered sensorium, loss of consciousness, projectile vomiting, and bleeding from ear, nose, and throat.

If at all, she becomes dull or develops any of the above symptoms, please get medical assistance immediately.

Hope that I have answered your query.

Stay healthy and stay blessed.
