In brief: Bump on head

If your son did not loose consciousness and is actind normal including no headache, dizzyness, unsteady gait and has no nausea or vomiting then all you have to do is put ice one the bump, which a hematoma, which means bleeding under the scalp and that is not serious and gradually the hematoma will get smaller and disappear as blood is absorped back in to your body.
So continue what you are doing.

Contact your pediatrician's office though. They should definitely be aware of this.
