I would like to use a custom head in Minecraft for Switch, like you can for the Java version of the game. How can I do that?

    Hi, Dustin! Welcome to Arqade. I’m not really sure what you’re asking about, could you please clarify? – Chaosblessed Jun 3 at 2:25

    Why was this put on hold? Is there a different way to understand this question than "You can create custom player heads in the Java edition, how do I do it in the switch edition?"? – user232393 Jun 4 at 8:03

  • @FabianRöling that post doesn't seem related to this one at all... Sounds like a custom skin question, but perhaps I'm mistaken about what an NBT tag is? – Tim S. Jun 27 at 13:21
  • @Tim NBT is everything in curly brackets, a way to set almost all properties of items, blocks and entities. It does not exist in MCPE, therefore the commands there are very limited. – Fabian Röling Jun 27 at 16:09

There is currently no way to get a custom player head in the nintendo switch version that works like the java version.

You could use a custom resource pack on a home brewed system to change the textures of the mob head. I advise against this unless you know what you are doing!
