My parents found this small fossil in 1970s when t hey were in France. It looks like a dinosaur skull but i'm not sure what it is.

Sorry, but no, this is not any type of skull. I don't see any bone here. One side has a vague resemblance to a reptile skull, but the other side shows no such features. This piece also seems to lack any details we'd expect from a real skull. As Troodon said, there would need to be sutures between the individual bones of a skull, as they are not made up of a single solid piece. I'm thinking those holes are there just because of erosion. Notice how the whole piece is rounded off? It looks like it's been worn by time and environment, possibly by water.

 

So yeah, it's not a fossil or skull. But it is an interesting looking rock.

It's a suggestively shaped rock with vugs having crystal druse .
