If a 2 year old child has fallen from a regular dining chair and hit the back or side of his head, what should we look for?

In brief: Change in behavior

Obviously, bleeding should be managed first, but after that i would recommend you follow his behavior closely.
If he seems confused or not aware of you, you should seek help immediately. He may cry and vomit after the episode, but vomiting later or more than once should give you cause for alarm.
