We present study of young embedded stars within the warm and dense atomic clouds in the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds with the CASPIR at the Siding Spring Observatory. We use JHKL band of the CASPIR to image six atomic clouds which are potential sites of the triggered star formation caused by expanding superbubbles and supershells. We characterize the embedded star clusters from the fit of the near and far-infrared spectral energy distribution (SED) together with the IRAS 25, 60, and 100 \mum.
