My son (8 yrs) fell on blacktop and banged the back of his head (no indication of head injury). However, last night he developed a fever any correlate?

In brief: No

The fever is not likely associated with your son's fall.
If he started showing signs of confusion, sleepiness or vomiting, it would be wise to see a doctor for a detailed evaluation.

In brief: I am confused

What do you mean by banged his back of head and no evidence of head injury.
I suggest to see your doctor soon. It may or may not be related to injury.
