I am trying to help my son add a custom head in Minecraft (PC, Java edition 1.13.2). According to this site I enter a command into a command block, for example,

/give @p minecraft:player_head{display:{Name:"{\"text\":\"Ice Block\"}"},SkullOwner:{Id:"192dbe7b-1309-4c27-a496-5878d81cd1f8",Properties:{textures:[{Value:"eyJ0ZXh0dXJlcyI6eyJTS0lOIjp7InVybCI6Imh0dHA6Ly90ZXh0dXJlcy5taW5lY3JhZnQubmV0L3RleHR1cmUvYTI2NDQwNzFiNmM3YmJhZTdiNWU0NWQ5ZjgyZjk2ZmZiNWVlOGUxNzdhMjNiODI1YTQ0NjU2MDdmMWM5YyJ9fX0="}]}}} 1

My understanding Is that the player’s head should change, but when I do this the command seems to be accepted but nothing changes. Am I missing a step?

/give always gives you an item, in this case it will give you a player head (i.e. the head will be in your inventory).

If you want to change the look of your character, you'll need to change your skin. Go to minecraft.net or use the launcher.
