When my son hit his head, I called the pediatrician (who had nurses staffed for medical advice if it was after-hours), and their direction for me was to observe for signs of possible concussion. It was a while ago, and I'm not a medical person, so I'm not going to attempt to give you all the details, but generally what I had to do was observe his behavior for certain things and, during the night, I had to wake him every few hours to see if he could walk and talk normally, then have him go back to sleep. I don't want to knock your uncle's advice, but I'd still advise calling the pediatrician for direction and peace of mind.
