Hello & welcome to Just Answer!

If you have any questions after reading my answer, be sure to let me know.

PediatricMD :

From your description it does not appear that there are any worrying symptoms,

PediatricMD :

If there are complaints of headaches, recurrent dizziness, vomiting repeatedly, altered behavior, then I would certainly look in to an underlying serious problem,

PediatricMD :

however at present I believe that there are no grounds to suspect a concussion,
