Tefillin should be placed on the head above the edge of the hairline. This is the place where hair begins to grow on the front of the head. Also, the Tefillin of the head can be put as far back as what we call the soft spot of the baby's head. The knot in the back of the Tefillin should be placed right below the bottom end of the skull, which is the hollow at the back of the skull. This knot should be put in the middle of the skull.

The straps of the Tefillin should then hang down in front, at least until the navel, with the black part of the straps facing forward.
