There seems to be strange lights flickering on my characters head. I think it's from the characters head wear which is nclothed. Anyone know why this happens??

Please check the following, as the issue might be of various reason and I don't have the file to check and give you exact solution.
Check whether any other object is causing reflection or specular on the guys body,It seems the bright object on the table might be causing the issue. Try turning off the specular and reflective contribution of the objects.
check out your FG.GI settings , if your are using it.
Also try to blur or reduce the bright spots on the image used for image based lighting.

It was pretty quick, but I'm 99% sure those are FG spots. Try turning up your samples. Or to check if that's the problem, disable FG and see if it persists.

I've run into issues similar to this when using FG. Try setting the trace depths of the materials, raytracing and FG to the same values and see if you still have the issue.
