In brief: See pediatrician
Headaches in children can have a lot of different causes.
Make sure your child has a regular sleep schedule and a good diet with no caffeine regular meals, and plenty of water/fluid intake. Headaches can be caused by allergies, migraines (esp. If other people in the family get them), or many other things. Concerning headaches usually come with vomiting, or occur in the middle of the night.
