Hello Neta's Mom, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com.
Reading the events experienced by your child, you should take your child to the doctor for further examination and evaluate the condition of your child after the collision.
In principle in the medical world, all head injuries, even minor head injuries, should be examined first by a doctor and recommended to be evaluated at least the first 24 hours after the injury to find out whether the injury caused other complaints or even worsened.
After your child has been examined for his current physical condition, the doctor may recommend to have a head X-ray or CT-scan if the injury suffered by your child is quite severe or even found an abnormality in physical examination on your child. However, if no abnormalities or injuries are found to be mild enough, then it is possible that doctors will only give pain relievers to help reduce complaints without further investigations.
For now, try to avoid re-injury to your child's head by securing the environment around your child to be as safe as possible for him. If the lump that occurs complained of pain by your child, can be helped by giving pain relievers such as paracetamol in accordance with the dosage on the package.
I hope this helps.
