I'm noticing more and more Sikhs in my community. I have a question about their hair styles and the things they have on their heads that aren't the full turban. I haven't been brave enough to go up and ask. I've talked to a couple at an indoor playground at a mall, and they seemed to welcome my questions, but I just can't get myself to go up and ask a stranger on the street.
I've seen kids (1-18), mostly male, with a braid up the back of the head and a little white ball on top, what is that and what's the significance?
What do the other, non turban, head coverings signify?
I've tried googling this online, but I'm not finding an answer.

Sikhism is a religion and according to their religion the males are not allow to cut their hairs. It is very odd thing in society to move with long hairs so they hide them in turban.
