The : The american academy of pediatrics recommends that you call your child's doctor for advice for anything more than a light bump on the head. If your child is alert, moving normally and responsive to you, then it's most likely a mild injury and you can follow up with your child's doctor in a day or two. It's ok to let them sleep/nap at this point if they are tired. If your child worsens, however, then that would be a reason to go to the emergency room. Other reasons to seek emergency care are: -vomiting -worsening headache -confusion -slurred speech -changes in behavior such as increasing irritability or fussiness -worsening coordination such as trouble walking or clumsiness -seizures -changes in pupils such as one larger than the other -lasting or recurrent dizziness -blood or fluid coming from the nose or ears - large bumps or bruises on areas other than the forehead - especially in infants a good rule of thumb is when in doubt, get it checked out! give your child's doctor a call with any questions. ...Read more

Likely normal: Sometimes normal children can do that. Try to teach your child to demonstrate frustration in other ways ( like jumping). If the child does not interact well with others I would have him seen by a pediatician. ...Read more

3 mo old w/ 1x2.5cm Anterior font and ridge in forehead, round head. Neonatologist carefully examined, measure, said not 2 worry. Is it normal?

3 mo old w/ 1x2.5cm Anterior font and ridge in forehead, round head. Neonatologist carefully examined, measure, said not 2 worry. Is it normal?

Yes, but: Anytime a parent has concerns about head size/shape, it deserves close monitoring because things change very rapidly at this age. The exam and measurements should occur monthly until all sutures have closed on the skull, usually 9-12 months of age. The ridge is likely the normal closure of the skull bones occurring, but needs to be monitored so it does not happen too soon. ...Read more

Wareham, : Wareham, it can happen, usually it is a boney spicule. A piece of bone that flakes off as the jaw remodels and works its way up through the gums till it is poking out and causing irritation and annoyance. Have your dentist/oral surgeon take a look, if correct it will take two minutes to remove usually with a little topical anesthetic. Hope this is helpful, michael i.
