Default Help.. my sons head!

My 6 month old son has a good size strawberry on his head, and he needs to wear a helmet to correct a flat spot on his head which was caused by having torticollis at birth.

I'm worried about the pressure the helmet is going to put on the strawberry. Has anyone ever had to deal with this or know if wearing the helmet will cause an issue? His pediatrician, physical therapist and orthopedic specialists have no answers, they have never had this issue before!!!

Do you have pictures? I would worry about it pushing on the hemangioma as well.
