What are the symptoms to look for post head injury?

My 2 year old grandson was running last night and hit the right of his head above the on the corner of my dresser...immediately a nickle/quarter size bump can up. He cried a bit and continued to play, I waited 2 hours before allowing him to sleep, he had a good night sleep and up this morning at 8:00 and the bump is gone. He ate breakfast, been playing, watching cartoons, however, he has been sleep since 12:30, woke up at 2:20 for a minute, now gone back to sleep, should I be concern?

Hello. I just read through your question.
Aftwr a hit to the head, a child may sleep as much or as little as he wants. The only sign to watch for is vomiting. If any vomiting occurs within the first 24 hours of The injury, you must consult with you doctor. If not, any activity he chooses is ok.
