if he has vomiting, loss of consciousness or seizures, you have to make sure that there is no internal injury. signs of bleeding or lump is not much significant. get a ct and neurosurgeon opinion if necessary after consulting a doctor

Dear Anonymous..

Vomitting is not a good sign.
Please see a consultant asap.. I suggest that you walk into the emergency department of your nearest hospital.
The Child will need a CT scan and observation in hospital.

as scalp has enormous blood supply,hematoma is fairly common following a history of fall from height.Though vomiting has been ceased, the baby still need a XRAY SKULL to exclude any fracture. If the baby vomits,get unconscios,having convulsions,loss of memory,irritability,altered behaviour and a fracture on xray, do a urgent CT scan.The baby may need a neurosurgical intervention.
