In brief: Monitor closely

A child's age, mental health status, and degree of force need to be take, in consideration before assuming things will be ok.
Young infants, children with changes in behavior or physical status and those who have suffered a signifcant blow to the head, should be ssen or at the very least discussed with your md.Any anomalies during next fre days call or see md asap, safe better than sorry.
