In brief: Not much
Unless your head injury was severe enough to cause brain damage at the time, and i'm guessing not as you are able to be online asking this question, you should not develop new brain problems now.
If there was focal brain damage at the time, there is always a risk of seizure after several months but this is exceedingly low.
