Concussion/deep laceration above left eye on forehead w/stitches. 4 days later, eye is cloudy & skin is turning pale below cut & swollen. This normal?

In brief: Likely healing

But contact the physician who placed sutures to find out when these are scheduled to be removed.

In brief: Be seen

I would definitely have it checked.
It may be just "normal healing" but concerns for an expanding hematoma, csf leak, even some necrosis around the lower "flap" would be best to rule out by a simple followup appointment.
