In brief: Many possibilities

There are many causes of headaches including trauma, stress, high blood pressure and masses/abnormal growth.
If the top of your head is tender after sustaining an injury, see a doctor immediately to check for internal brain injury. If your head is only tender when experiencing a headache this could be migraines. If the headaches persist, consider making an appointment for evaluation.
