In brief: No correlation
Seizures are a condition of control of brain activity.
Anomalies of the brain may cause funny dents in the child's head, but the dent is a result of the growth of bone, not the condition of the brain. The organization of the brain is the more important issue. This needs to be carefully assessed by a good pediatric neurologist.
