You did your job, which you have to do, so do not apologize for that. It probably wouldn’t have made a difference how you worded your response to the dad, actually.

You could certainly express concern for the boy’s well being. I would probably say something like, “Are you OK? I’m sorry that happened the other day. I’m here if you want to talk.”

You will be able to judge your next step after each of those sentences, by how he responds. The important thing is to let him know you care about him.
