    have had/has had/had had

    Why do some people use "have had/has had/had had" in their sentences??
    Are these sentences correct grammatically? Do these sentences follow grammar rules?
    I have got some sentences which made me so confused-

    1. Have they had their breakfast yet?
    2. Have you had a nice evening?
    3. Have you always had hay fever?
    4.I've had a headache since early morning.

    Please make me understand anyhow.:)
    And do correct if there are any grammatical mistakes.
    Thank you!

    Re: have had/has had/had had

    They are correct- the first verb is the auxiliary verb and the second is the past particple to form the present perfect.
