That depends: You can have a concussion with or without loss of consciousness. Possible symptoms include: headache/ pressure of head, inability to recall what happened, dizziness, decreased coordination, ringing in the ears, confusion, slurred speech, nausea or vomiting & extreme fatigue. If you believe you have a concussion please seek medical care. Seek emergency care for loss of consciousness, on-going >.

Provided original answer
confusion, seizures, new onset of unequal pupils, recurrent vomiting, change in level of consciousness, loss of balance or difficulty walking. Do you have any uncontrolled bleeding or lacerations? If you are feeling good - then just be self aware for the next few days in case you have any delayed symptoms.

Neurologist: If there is any internal damage to your brain, this would be handled by a neurologist. IF your symptoms persist, that would be a good next step.
