My baby is 3 months old and since yesterday I notice his head is warm, palm also too please is it normal?
Feeling your baby's head with your palm can be misleading. Get a digital thermometer, a reading between 36.5 and 37.5 °C is normal. When the readings is above that, you might need to give paracetamol and Tepid sponge.
But if it persists, you will need to take the child to see a paediatrician for proper evaluation and management. Kindly note that some children do have normal body temperature with hot forehead. This is usually due to excessive play, where blood vessels are dilated.

There is no sign of bcg on my 3 month old baby arm. Do I need to take him back for another one?
Sometimes the BCG is given too deep instead of into the skin and at times it might not show for whatever reason. Usually to confirm in case of no BCG scar, we will do a mantoux test to see if there is a reaction expected for someone who has had BCG. If there is none after 72 hours, we will give the BCG again as long as child is healthy(a normal Chest X ray may be needed at times)
