He seemed ok and I thought it was healing but this morning his cheek very swollen and he cried when he woke up saying it hurt! he has been eating and drinking normally since the accident happened but I am now concerned because it looks swollen today.

Hi, Obrien,
Thanks for query.
it seems that your son might have infection on injured chin and lip.
Consult your doctor and get proper dressing done.
He may require antibiotic medicine course for healing.
Ok and bye.
