Thank you for posting your query.
First of all, I would like to reassure you that your child's symptoms do not suggest any serious internal brain injury.

The description is suggestive of scalp hematoma, which can cause pain and swelling in the affected region. Colour change over the skin is normal in these conditions. We expect improvement over the next 5-7 days.

If there is headache or vomiting, a CT scan of the head may be done.
I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
