Any significant impact with a helmet you should replace it, especially if it is enough to give you pain as a headache or concussion.

The foam in the helmet although it seems hard absorbs the impact. Once it has done that it does not become soft again. So if you hit it in the same spot again other than protection against sharp objects you may as well not have it on cause there will be no shock absorption.
