Hi there...when did he get hurt? And how big is the swelling? Healing will depend on that. Following injury there can inflammation, which can lead to swelling. This will take about 1 to 2 weeks to come down. If he is able to able walk and move his leg properly, then there is very less likely of any fracture or dislocation. But for safety you can consult a nearby orthopedic for further evaluation.
