Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. When I first saw it, I didn't automatically assume it was from the bridle (because I've never seen it either), but my BO said she thought it was too much of a coincidence. It scabbed up already... I rode her in a leather headstall today and it looked fine when I got back. Oh well, I went ahead and got the poll protector. It can't hurt.
