    Question Get Someone's Head Around Something

    What does "They can't get their heads around it" mean?

    Is it that they can't "understand" something?

    Thanks :)

    Hi!
    Yes, that's right. Definition from Cambridge Idioms.

    get your head around sth informal

    to be able to understand something
