Is it normal to be able to indent your head easily with your finger?

I have been suffering CONSTANT migraines for the past month to the point I went to the DR and he sent me straight over to a bigger hospital an hour away, They have not gone away since and the hospital said they found nothing alarming in my scans and diagnosed me with Acute non intractable headache, unspecified headache type ( i took that right from the sheet) well I was laying with my finger pressed against my head and lifted it and noticed a dip (i had it where the headaches hit the worst) i tried this again in the other area where it hits the worst (back right and left of my head) and to no shock it did it, when the rest of my head did not and was solid. What could this be? I will definitely mention it to my PCP when I return and to the neuro specialist during my next appointment.

please remember im 14 i have no clue what the hell im doing!
Thanks In Advance

Where on your head did you press that it dented in? The only place that should be soft is right in the center of the back of your neck, around where your hairline may start. That's where the spine ends.

I'm really happy they found nothing in your scans. Do you know what type of scans they did?

So "Acute non intractable headache, unspecified headache type" means it had an abrupt or sudden onset (acute), lasts up to 72 hours (non-intractable), and they don't know what type of headache it is (migraine, tension, etc.

I hope you get some relief soon.
