I remember reading about someone mentioning and now I have to know,

What is that thing? It seems to be part of his armor, but I mean is there a name for what it is? I don't even care that it's useless or whatever, I just want to know just what the heck it is?

Although if it did have a purpose that'd be nice.

We were talking about the strange 90's fashion in head-framing gear just the other day in Which X-Men characters need a costume update?. It's something that quite a few other -Men characters wore (like Havok). I guess Gambit didn't get the memo to say 'It's not 1991 anyone; Welcome to 2012'.

It's a head condom. It's so Rogue can kiss his head and he won't get hurt. I don't actually know if it's actually called " head condom ", but as far I'm concerned it is now.

It's an artistic convenience.  Not every one has been able to figure out how that particular hairstyle somehow connects to his head.

- It's a cajun symbol of his status as " Master Pimp of New Orleans"
