Brother punched me in face. Mom did nothing. Is this abuse?

Home More advice Parents & Family

Okay, me and my brother and other siblings were sitting at the dinner table eating completely happy, and my brother sat there and punched me in the face, no reason what-so-ever. I told mom, and she just continued watching TV and actually believed his lie that he was "trying to hug me". So I'm like wtf?! O_O Are you seriously going to let him do that? I can't tell if this is abuse or not. He is younger than me, and probably can't go to jail for it. What do I do?!
