Hi
Expert:  Linda Simmon replied 13 days ago.
Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.
A fall from a height can cause internal injuries including a diaphragmatic hernia, lung contusions, a ruptured bladder, fractured bone etc.
Given how young the kitten is, it is very important they are checked over by a vet.Agni may well need some medicine such as anti inflammatories and pain relief.I wouldn't delay and would have him seen ASAP.

You think it s ok to go go tomorrow morning as all is Closed niw
Expert:  Linda Simmon replied 13 days ago.
I would not advise waiting given the height from which he fell and his age.
If you need the details for an open emergency vet please send me your postcode.

Do you mean a consultation from an emergency vet? This depends on the clinic so you need to ask them directly. Costs can vary from £80 to £220 to be seen as an emergency.
