Based on pictures, it seems to me that a vast majority of fish species that have scales do NOT have scales on their heads.
Is that fact true?
To make this properly answerable:
lets' define a "majority" as >70% of fish species. But frankly, I'm more interested in actual numerical answer than whether it passes some arbitrary threshold or not.
The universe which I'm interested in measuring the percentage are fish species that have "normal" (Cycloid and ctenoid is the technical term, I believe?) scales on their bodies.
If that's not specific enough, you can restrict the universe to species in Actinopterygii (ray-finned) that have scales.
