Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Assuming your brother is 12 years old, he is not too young. If the lines are from grabbing him tight like finger impressions then they should fade and should not cause any damage.

However, if you accidentally twisted his arm, there may be swelling or bruises. In that case, he will have pain and a more serious injury must be ruled out. If he is complaining of pain in his arm, he has difficulty moving his arm or if there are swelling or bruises, tell your parents and take him to the hospital.
