Small child, head injury, dent behind head, acting normal. Cause of worry?

I feel so terrible, when I was walking up The steps I slipped and we both went down, my 9 week old. He hit thr back of his head on the strip not really had but enough to put a little dent in the back. He s acting normal,did cry but ate fine and was smiling and cooing soon after but I m super worried. He had a doctor appointment on Tuesday, but wondering if I should be so worried.

He seems to have escaped any head injury and that's fine. Do see your Dr for that dent in his back though. Good luck.
