Hiiii it's type of blood clot dat is blood is accumulated in bew skull and periosteum as due to blood vessels are ruptured crossing periosteum. so the ext feature is swelling so it's nt like dt it ll show immediately (in any Neuro cases it's nt predictable dat the features or symptoms ll seen immediately)

Hi G S Harika, follow the doctor's instruction. Take a good care of your baby never let him fall or hurt on his head. Keep a close eye over the bulge if its size is increasing or decreasing and keep yoor doctor informed about the progress.
