Not enough info: You need to describe the headache specifics. If it is a significant issue have it evaluated by a neurologist.

Need more informatio: Cannot really answer because I am not sure what you are asking. Migraine is of hereditary, but not always. If you have migraine, the headache will usually be typical for you, no matter how unusual it may seem, but these issues would best be addressed by seeing a neurologist to discuss headache, or start with pcp for referral.

Get checked out: A good start at finding potential headache triggers would be to maintain a diary. Every time you have a headache write down what you were doing, the foods you ate that day, alcohol, smoking, caffeine, stress, how much sleep you had the night before, eye strain, etc. Try to find patterns in your headache so that you can learn what things to avoid. Get checked by your doctor.
