Yes, it's possible that a hat may cause or trigger any of several different headache types. The most common headache type triggered by wearing a hat is called Tension Type Headache. The only way to know is to be seen by a doctor however, as there are other reasons wearing a hat may cause pain which need to be diagnosed and treated.
