Hahah! My sister did this too! She put herself to sleep at night by rhythmically hitting her head against the walls of her crib. It was like a way to relax. (and she grew up to be quite smart, in case you're wondering). It could be that it just feels good. My son loved hitting his own head when he was 2 and 3. Unless it's really hard or aggravated hitting, I'd say, normal.
