In brief: Just time

Most skull fractures will heal in 3 months without any specific treatment.
Some skull fractures that may require surgery include depressed fractures, fractures involving the frontal sinuses and compound skull fractures.

In brief: Conservative

Most are managed conservatively, although if they are significantly depressed, causing neurological injury or cosmetically deforming, surgical options do exist.
