    If you've never sun burned before, ask someone to look at your head.  If you've had a buzz cut for a long time, I dunno what would change suddenly.   Are you taking any new meds?  That can cause it sometimes.

    Yes - the top of your head can get sunburned - especially if you shave your head or have a buzz cut. There's nothing on your head to block out the sun's rays.

    Brown skin or white skin - it doesn't matter. The top of your head can still get sunburned - no matter what your skin color.

    Yes, just like people can get cancer on their ears, any part of your body is susceptible to sunburn.

    Sure, your scalp is skin.  I used to get sunburnt along the part in my hair every summer
