Enough damage to replace?

Only had my new helmet for a week before I tried out it's protective qualities. Managed to go over the bars and headbut some rather rocky ground denting the outer casing. Not sure if the picture will work as I'm posting from a new phone, what is the consensus regarding replacement. Would it be ok in another crash?

I'm thinking better to be safe than sorry

    Can't see the pic, but it sounds like new helmet time to me.

    Does the manufacturer have a crash replacement policy?

    Not worth the risk - if it's dented the outside then there's a chance that the internal structure has been damaged. And it's not really worth risking your head, is it?

    I agree, will buy a new one. It saved my head so I guess I've had my monies worth
