What might be causing a dent on the forehead to become bigger after a motorbike accident?

April, 2017 my son fell off his motorbike - at the time he had no injuries. In June 2017 he noticed a small finger size dent in the center of his forehead right at the hairline area. As of today, the dent has gotten bigger with a line coming down the center of his forehead. Can you give me some info as to what might be causing this dent to get bigger. Thanks, Al

The increase in the dent can be related to bone growth along with a calcium or vitamin D3 deficiency. You need to get his serum levels checked and start with suitable supplements.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
