Default Clover had a fall

The other day my bearded dragon (just over a year old) fell off the window sill. It was my fault i had turned my back on him
I picked him up and inspected him, then watched him walk around and all was fine.
The trouble is he hasnt come out of the cave since... he has slept alot he is alert but wont come out to feed or anything.
The temps are spot on etc anyone have any idea what could be wrong-would he be still in shock after the fall?

He could have hurt himself and is now hiding to protect himself as he'd do in the wild if he was injured. Can you feel any swelling on any of his limbs or around any of his joints?

Hi he came out today my wife took him outside and he run around loving it.
When she brought him back in he wandered around the viv then back in the cave
I checked him over and he seems fine no swelling.
