Remaining non-dissolvable stitches on scalp

My son had a few non-dissolvable stitches on his scalp. It is about a month since those stitches were done and the doctor had it removed that following week. At that time, I suspected that there were still stitches left since there were still 2 1cm threads hanging. I thought it that it must have been stuck because of the wound still with dried blood and it will eventually go away. However, about a month has passed, and the threads are still hanging, I tried to carefully pull it but my son said that it was painful. It turns reddish when I pulled the thread. What must I do? What complications can my son get? How dangerous is the situation?
