you should probably take it to your local repair person and have them resize the headjoint tenon, a headjoint falling off of your instrument is never good. although, in the meantime, you can use plumber's tape (it's white and is not sticky, but you can wrap it around the tenon and it will stay on pretty well). hope that helps!
