Brief Answer:
Needs a clinical examination and scan if required

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for writing to us.
Hit by iron rod on skull with headache definitely needs urgent clinical examination and scan if required after examination. Do not wait for symptoms like vomiting to develop.
I suggest you to take the child immediately to your nearby hospital to rule out intracranial bleed or fracture.
