If just the right blow occurred to his head, this could trigger a slow bleeding beneath the scalp--called a cephalohematoma. These are rarely dangerous; however, occasionally these occur secondary to a linear skull fracture. Did your grandson lose consciousness? If this area is tender, see your doctor. ...Read more
