No worry: Those "knots" are most likely resolving hematomas (bruises). They are soft initially, but as the body takes care of them, they become hard and can stay that way for 6-12 months. Occassionally the firm area will persist indefinitely due to some scar tissue formation under the skin. These areas are veryvduperficial and do not represent any injury to the brain.
