Brief Answer:
Nothing to worry about.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to " Ask a Doctor" service.

I have read your query and here is my advice.

Don't worry about the ridge on your skull several months after the trauma.

It may be due to local inflammation, a sort of scar tissue under the skin, or on the skull bone.

Since you had no neurological symptoms., we can say that it was not serious head trauma.

I hope this helps.

Feel free to ask if you have further questions.
