What could these hard, painful bumps on my head be?
They are only on the very top and they are hard, painful, and feel like they might have little scab-tops. I can't see them because they are under my hair and I tried to get my mom to look at them but she said she didn't see anything. Any ideas as to what this is? Thanks so much!

They are hard? Hum... The head and neck are where a lot of people get boils... They may be insect bites... Hum... I'm assuming you haven't left the country recently? Specifically south america or africa? Then it can be a parasite.
I say it is more likely that it is either some sort of insect bite or a cluster of boils.
Either way, have your school nurse check them out for you... S/he can at least tell you if you need to tell your mom to take you to a doctor.
If you get a fever or if they start to really hurt, tell your parents...
