In brief: Premi???

Your question states kid was born at 6m. If u mean 6m into a pregnancy, yes a kid born that prematurely is susceptable to to intracranial hemorrhage due to the weaker blood vessel walls in the fetal brain.
Blood pressure shifts during the hours of intensive care can result in leaks (hemorrhage).

In brief: Yes

At 6 months of age, an intracranial hemorrhage is probably due to trauma.
Since babies are not moving much at that age, abuse would be the main concern. Rarely, a bleeding disorder or vascular anomaly may also be a cause.
