Laptop impact damage

I have a hp probook 4530s and let a few kids play minecraft on it, during an argument they had the laptop was dragged across the small desk a little but once or twice lifted so it was sitting on its back legs with the front a few centimetres off the table, then let down so the front hit the desk like when closing a laptop lid but heavier and at a lower hight. This was while it was on with miencraft open. Will the laptop be ok, no cosmetic damage, continued to play the game after

Do you have an OS partition full image backup to an external media routine? If so, keep a couple of current backups just in case. Make one or two new ones. Find and run hard-drive diagnostics for your particular internal hard-drive. And, if this is a business computer, consider making it off-limits until a "no-argument/no moving laptop" attitude & behavior is firmly in place [I say that only because any hard-drive can become "bad" through such accidental hits].
