I can understand your concerns. Abdominal pain in children can be absolutely non-specific. There are numerous causes of abdominal pain. Raging from the most benign to the outright life-threatening. So not all abdominal pain is appendicitis.
Where is the abdominal pain? Is it upper, middle or lower abdominal? Is it in the middle or on either side?
Does he have any nausea or vomiting?
Does he have any worms in stool?
Does he complain of abdominal dissension or pain during stool passage?
When did he fall off the bike? This afternoon? An she has been having abdominal pain even before trauma?
With answers to the above questions, I may be able to help you.

Thank you for answering my queries. Really appreciate it.
Your child's abdominal pain does not appear to be a reason for worry. Most children report on and off peri umbilical ( around the umbilicus, middle of their tummy) pain without a specific cause.
You can give him a course of ant-helminthic drugs. This will deworm his food pipe. Many children of this age may harbor worms in their food pipe.
Give him 10 ml of Syrup Bendex once at bedtime. Repeat the dose 2 weeks later.
If the pain recurs, you may have to consult a paediatric gastroenterologist.
