Welcome to Healthcare Magic
If there is no skin damage and bleeding then not to worry about bald patch, hair if damaged will surely grow back. If you feel drowsy, headache, nausea, vomiting you should be taken to ER immediately suspecting brain bleed.

u need not to worry .
there will be no baldness over area of punch .
ya ,there is chance of some hair loss ,but it is due to traction and trauma ,
its temporary only ,hair will come back at that spot .
pain is also not severe ,means u have low grade injury only
so be relax and eat healthy .
