    Answer: Option 1,3 and option 4


    The new born child or neonate has swelling in the left occiput that crrosses the sagittal surture line requires no treatment.

    But there is no need for being tensed as parents and there is no need for the treatment because the swelling lies there because of the pressure on the fetal head that is caused due to delivery.

    There is no need of medication it will be normal after sometime and due to this swelling hyperbilirubinemia may also occur which is normal and will be okay after the swelling is gone.
