Quick advice please re bump on head

DS fell at nursery about 5pm and has a massive raised bump on his forehead.

With concussion in mind, should I be keeping him up for a while? Or do you think 7pm bedtime as usual should be OK.

Colour round eyes?

Any blood?

Bed as normal and check on him every 20 minutes or so.

How is he feeling now?

No blood, just a bad graze. Eyes seem normal. Seem fine, says he feels OK. He is a little flushed but that is probably the heat.

He sounds okay but keep an eye on him.

Thank you smile

Incapable of making a sensible decision by myself this evening.

I am rubbish when it comes to my own but calm with other peoples.
