Hello,

As you have told, your son got injured right below the temple with a baseball. Since then he is feeling very sick. I feel even though the ball was not thrown really hard, and it looks like your son has a minor injury to head, you should show him to a doctor as he is still feeling very sick. He will able to make a better decision after examining your son.


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

Regards,
Dr. Deepak Verma
