In brief: Impact surface ??

A fall into a thick padded carpet is less worrisome than a wooden floor or hard object.
An infant that was not knocked out, but cried quickly & then settled may be ok. If soft spot is still open, a soft one is a good sign but a hard or bulging one is cause for worry. Any sunken in place in the skull should be evaluated.At the very least call babied doc & discuss what happened.
