What's Under Edd's Hat?

There are many theories surrounding Double D's trademark sock-hat, and the mystery behind what could just be under it. Many viewers believe that he was deformed from birth and that he either has an ear underneath his hat or a deformed twin. These beliefs stem from multiple occurrences in the show in which Edd is shown without his hat on. For example, in the TV movie for the series, Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show, Eddy was horrified by what was under his friend's hat, and Ed also asked Double D if whatever was under his head hurt. Unfortunately for the viewer, Edd's head is obscured during this scene, and the viewer doesn't get to find out what the big reveal was. Many people also believed that Edd is either bald or has blond hair. This theory most likely stemmed from the Cartoon Network video game entitled Lunchroom Rumble. If you were to play as Edd and were also able to beat the game, the Edd sprite would then proceed to take off its hat and throw it into the air in triumph. However, this is actually false, because this computer game wasn't produced by the animation studio, a. k. a. Cartoon, and therefore, it's not canonical to the main series. The idea about Edd having blond hair is also false, because Edd clearly has three strands of black hair on the back of his head, and therefore this theory is also debunked.But one theory is that Double D has cancer, which makes a great deal of sense. In the movie, Edd's next line of dialogue in after Eddy sees him with his hat off ("You stop that") and Eddy's facial expressions suggests that Eddy's reaction was grossly exaggerated and that whatever is under Edd's hat is just something ugly that kids would laugh at rather than find horrifying. The circumstantial evidence of Edd's hat being only cloth, his determination to never let go of his hat, and not being worse off from enduring physical damage than the other Eds, suggest that Edd is hiding something purely cosmetic and not anything debilitating if hit. Given this, it is highly probable that Edd is bald and hides a surgery scar under his hat, likely to remove a brain tumor, which is not uncommon among childhood cancer cases, or maybe he does have hair it's just he's attached too his beanie/hat for emotional issues. Yet these are all just theories or they could be true. We may never know.
