Small child, head injury, bump on head, bleeding, dent in forehead. Normal symptoms?

My son is 3. On Friday he fell out of our vehicle and hit his head. His doctor office suggested we take him to urgent care BC of the nature of the bump on his head and it was bleeding . Urgent care said he had a concussion and that was it ....they never ran any test. Now when we change his bandage we noticed a dent in his forehead where the goose egg was. Is this normal or should we have test done to rule something major out?

I dont think so. If he is very conscious, you dont notice any changes in behaviour, nor any complains, its ok. Watch out if he starts complaining of headache again, or starts vomitting or has any fits or abnormal movements. If not, I think you just need to watch, its not an issue i suppose.
But watch for those things
