Thank you.Your son seems to have had what is known as a small 'depressed fracture' of his forehead as a result of his fall. He also probably had some slight bleeding into the fracture site which formed a small 'haematoma' causing the blueish colour which takes a very long time to be absorbed and disappear.He seems to be perfectly well but you now are concerned about the small, but obvious dent in his forehead.He is very young and it may not be possible to correct this small dent now, but it would be worthwhile to ask a plastic surgeon to see him and to give an opinion on the way forward from here.
