  • I would - just to make sure everything is ok! And let the doctor take a look at the cut!

  • I'd call the pediatrician and see what they say for sure, but if it were me, i'd watch for signs of concussion (google it, it'll explain it better) and make sure he stays awake for a while.

  • I would say it depends on how hard he hit it... if he just fell over while sitting, even if he did cut his head it's probably just a cut and a bump.. I would worry about a concussion if he fell off the bed or couch and hit his head on a table or something like that.
