In brief: Get an xray

He should get an xray to make sure the prosthesis is in correct position.
With a fall like this, a fracture can occur. If the xray looks ok, then he just has a good bruise.

In brief: Painful hip

He should have an examination and x-rays to ensure no problem. Best to see the surgeon who did his original surgery.
Good luck!
