Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.

banging your head on a formica cabinet would have caused a pump on your scalp in one area.

you say you are feeling ridges on your scalp?

how many ridges are you feeling?

which way are they running? from front to back?

do you have a doctor you can feel your scalp?

we can't examine you like this over the internet.

Like you say, the ridges are not painful and they have not caused you a headache or caused you any symptoms whatsoever, I would not worry whatsoever.I do not think it is anything serious or anything to worry about.It may have been due to wearing a ponytail but again nothing serious.I would however like that you should be examined by your doctor just to be on the safe side.Let me know if you have more questions.I would appreciate it if you rate me by clicking on one of the rating options below.Kind regards
