Patient :15 month old hit forehead on the edge of a table. It dented the skin but no bleeding. It bruised and was very slighty swollen. Where the thin line dented, it has a red mark that is still seen but getting fainter. There is a slight dent in the unlayers of skin when she raises her eyebrows, and I feel a little ridge. I worry about fracture, a permanent dent and scarring. Should I?
