Not much to worry: These soft bumps are quite common after head injuries that u described. Nothing much to worry about. If there is some bleeding inside the bump it may make skin around your eyes discolored because of blood seeping into the eyelids due to gravity. Some danger signals to look out for are : vomiting, severe headaches, blurred vision, which shd prompt you to see medical attention should they occur.
