Is it normal to have a soft spot on the back of head after a fall?

My baby (7 months old) fell and bumped the back of his head on hard wood flooring a week ago. He has been acting normal and seems to be ok. After the fall he still seemed normal. The only thing I'm concerned about is that he still has a soft squishy spot on the back of the head where he fell at. Is that normal?
