That seems to be Harry favorite barb these days. It's not really an insult, since Harry really doesn't have any idea what an insult is or why or when someone would use one, and since "fuffyhead" really isn't all that insulting a word. It is, perhaps not surprisingly, a rhyming derivation of "poopyhead," which is, of course, a less favorable, yet completely understandable result of Harry hanging around with other three-year-olds. We, and Harry's teacher who I've spoken with about the two terms, feel that we're doing pretty good if we minimize the "poopyheads" and joke about the "fuffyheads."
