I have understand...: ....What you mean by "his eyes are so low." if you mean his eyes have been pushed down by impact, call 911. Children bang their heads all the time. If he's running around and playing, he's fine. If there was a loss of consciousness, disorientation (not knowing who/where he is, not recognizing you etc.), repeated episodes of vomiting, odd behavior etc., then seek medical attention.
