Baby concussion signs?

Ds2 fell off the bed onto wood floor about half an hour ago. He's 6.5mths.
Screamed like anything, wasn't sick and has fallen asleep- he was already tired as bedtime was overdue.
what signs should I look for concussion?
is it right to rouse him a couple of times in the night to check he's ok?

Call NHS direct, they gave me great info when DD fell against a coffee table. They told me where to check for bumps etc etc and told me to rouse her every 2 hours through the night.

Poor pickle, I would check though, they were great with me.

I'd phone NHS direct right away. They are super and won't at all think you are time wasting. NHS Direct 0845 46 47.

Hope he's okay.
